Tasting Notes Valserrano Gran Reserva
Garnet color with a high layer with little evolution. Its aroma without moving is intense with hints of elderflower, honeycomb, waxes, honey, accompanied by hints of lavender. When moving, perfumes of Mediterranean flowers, scrubland and even laurel appear together with bitter chocolate, ginger and hints of black tea. In the mouth it has a powerful, voluptuous attack, immediately wraps the palate unifying it and fills it with flavors that we have sniffed before, such as laurel. All accompanied by highly integrated, friendly and tasty tannins.
In the aftertaste it is presented with power and flavors of red fruits come out, which gives it a long life.
