Tasting Notes

Color: Deep cherry color with purple hues.

Nose: Elegant wine, with a good aromatic range and great complexity. Aromatic bouquet of excellent mature black fruit, spicy notes, balsamic, toasted and mineral notes.

Palate: Tasty, broad, powerful, but with a fine and elegant tannin, very expressive, with the acidity of vines grown in very poor land. Long, pleasant and persistent finish where the toasted touch stands out. It will have a long life because of its structured tannins and noble-acidity.
