A wine with ample, solid structure and very intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The aroma releases notes of cassis and bilberry and persistent plum jam, elegant, light oak with a background of cinnamon, cocoa and balsamic notes. The initial flavour is definitely concentrated, dense and fleshy with mature tannins that envelop the mouth with a long-lasting finish.
Very deep ruby with intense purple nuances.
Intense, complex and ample, it reveals hints of red jam and sweet spices, the finish has a pleasant balsamic touch on a lightly mentholated background.
Powerful structure with a pronoinced hint of red fruit; great concentration and harmony, juicy with dense, warm dannins; very long finish, pleasantly fresh.
