Quick Overview

IQUE 'ee-kay' is a fresh and young wine with fruity characteristics. Intense ruby-red with violet hints in color, it possesses fruity aromas which remind of fresh red fruits and white pepper. Firm structure, soft lush tannins and a satisfying end.

Food Matching: Pair with rich meats although the gentle tannins allow it to work well on it's own, or maybe with dark chocolate! Also it pairs with pasta and cheese.
