Tasting Notes Vinsacro red
Very intense dark cherry color. Very expressive showing aromas of good maturity, balsamic nuances and notes of leather and minerals with a very pleasant vanilla background. Tasty with a lot of body and structure, with ripe and round tannins, leaving a feeling of asking for another glass. Very long and wide. (The slogan of our winemaker "wine is to enjoy")
