Tricollis is a ruby coloured mellow red wine, where pinot noir and merlot are dominant, completed gently with cabernet franc. Notes of cherry and red-currant on the nose are enriched by the fine cinnamon spices due to the aging in small barrels. Soft tannins make the blend medium-bodied and keep it nice and easy-drinking.
