An aristocratic bold wine with a decisive personality, it fully reveals the extraordinary land that is found near the volcano where the wine is grown. The captivating brilliant ruby red colour hints at the delicious bouquet that suggest red fruits and spices; most evident are black currants, prunes, cinnamon and black pepper. The palate has excellent concentration and is long, warm and enveloping, with elegant, pleasing tannins.
