The Viern is dark colored, very intense and lively, with appealing violet tinges. The nose needs some air to unfold itself, and we appreciate at first faint toasted bread perfumes, yeast and smoky notes to end with a spectacular array of aromas: black fruits jam, graphite, flint, liquor ice, everything framed in an overall mineral sensation.
In the mouth we will notice the peculiar balance of vivacity and warmth that our unique soil and climatic conditions allow. The hilly geography and altitude provide very distant night and day temperatures, and that helps keeping the grapes’ acidity. On the other hand, great sunlight and usual drought helps the wine’s maturation, originating a full-bodied texture and a very structured finish. The mild but very present tannins confer the wine wide food pairing possibilities: from delicate dishes based on beef, to heavy roasts of game.
