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