Calvary Tasting Notes

Intense purple red color. Powerful and elegant on the nose, with great aromatic complexity (compotes, minerals, menthol, spices, coppice, toffee and cocoa). Great harmony in the mouth with very marked sweet tannins, very complex and full of black fruit flavors, raisins, licorice, coffee, ink and aromatic herbs. Long and persistent finish in the mouth. Great aging wine.
