Food match Beef carpaccio with parmesan.

This pinot has a medium-light red-purple hue and an appealing aroma of spiced plum and cherry, a hint of sap, and mysterious foresty touches. The palate is soft, fleshy and smooth, medium-bodied and long, with spicy, foresty flavours. A tasty, well-priced pinot. Now to 2020. 13.5 per cent alcohol.
