Viña del Olivo Continuous Tasting Notes
Extraordinary fruit expression, elegant complexity and richness of nuances where the spicy tones that adorn a fruit component stand out. Memories of red fruits and balsamic touches, such as anise, mint and licorice. Powerful structure, broad, with a large skeleton, live tannins that originate from being a ripe fruit and very good wood. It came with great balance and remarkable power, which leaves glimpse its power, and memories of being a great Tempranillo.
