TASTING NOTES

Fine wine, brilliant cherry color with violet hints

Great balance between fruit and wood on the nose. Red and black fruits with some spicy touch with vanilla aromas

Light wooden touch on the mouth from a serious wine but fresh, friendly and alive with a lovely acidity from the area.
