Winemaker`s notes:

In colour Othello is deep, dark red. The scent is rich and layered, consisting of elements such as freshness, fine spices, fruitiness and minerality. The story of it`s smell starts with herbal, spicy tones which are reminiscent of a combination of paprika and cedar, after that it takes you to a completely different place with the aroma of fully ripe black currant mixed with a light plum element and concentrated sour cherries. The whole story of Othello`s scent ends with a soft smokiness that gives a coffe like aroma. When you take a sip you start a new yourney. The flavour is rich and elegant. It`s richness and lively acidity give it a special kind of payfulness and lightness. Soft, spicy notes and sturdy tannins intertwined with already mentioned acidity give it a backbone and a foundation for furher aging. It`s intensity, sweetness and aftertaste points to the fact that this is one of the best editions of Othello so far.

Combining with food:

Mellow and juicy grilled red meat such as steak or rib eye steak, other meats in dark, not too spicy sauces, roasted duck, turkey or octopus.
