Sight: Ruby red, with luster and clarity. Smell: Expressive nose of regular complexity, primary notes of red fruits, blackcurrants and cherry. Taste: Appealing, supple and light. The palate is characteristic of its balance: acidity and almost total absence of tannins enhance the impression of roundness. Attractive, elegant and fresh finish.
