Introducing the Celler Laurona Reserva Limitada 2008
Deep intense red colour with violet hues. Penetrating, complex yet subtle aroma with clear notes of blackcurrants, plums and figs. As it opens, complexity grows with scent of violent and balsamic. Surrounded with cinnamon, clove and lightly toasted. Ripe tannins and balanced acidity refreshes its long finish and invites us to repeat the experience. Serves well with meat stews, grilled meats, vegetables, cold cuts and aged cheese.
