Tasting Notes Continuous Garnacha
Great expressiveness of aromas, ripe red fruits, cherries and currants, with notes of menthol, camphor and minerals, spices and light balsamic tips. In the mouth it has a thicker texture with a sweet and unctuous entry in the mouth, fine tannins with good fruit load and wood, good persistence and a harmonious finish.
