TASTING NOTES

Intense cherry colour with purple hues. The nose is dominated by fruity sensations (blackberry, blueberry, black fruit) over the perfectly integrated tones of aging in wood, which provide sensations of cedar and tobacco. In the mouth is serious and lively with power and great balance, wide and tasty combining fruit freshness and the elegant structure of a wine guard.
