Tasting notes: Deep dark red color with ruby shades. Complex, spicy, attractive bouquet with fruity aromas of blueberry, ripe black cherry, and mulberry, enhanced by notes of black and green pepper, elegant oak, and dried herbs. The taste is dominated by fruity-spicy aromas of ripe and dried fruits, black pepper, and vanilla. The finish is long and the aftertaste - spicy and persistent. Good volume and richness in the mouth; Mogilovo Village is a medium to full-bodied wine with excellent balance and velvety tannins.
