TASTING NOTES
APPEARANCE
This 2010 presents an incredible deep purple color. Indeed, the first 24 hours of fermentation, the juice came out unusually bright red purple or black for certain tanks
NOSE There were strong flavors that emerged from the tanks
MOUTH Lot of fruits and already showing an appealing soft roundness. Incredibly soft tannins supported by a wonderful acidity that provides a remarkably long finish
