Tasting Notes Sierra Cantabria gran reserva
Ruby red, showing tile notes on the rim of the glass; medium-high layer, clean and bright. Intense, fragrant, complex aroma, ripe red fruit, balsamic, vanilla, toasted and light notes of truffle. On the palate it is vigorous, fresh, silky, with a good presence of ripe tannins, developing a great balance and complexity of flavors, strongly perceiving the notes of perfectly integrated red fruit with balsamic, brown, oak and roasted notes. In the aftertaste we find it long, with memories of fruit, spices and cocoa.
