Tasting Notes
The wine has a clear, deep ruby-red color. Nose: red berries, fruit stones and nectarines. After swirling, overtones of spices and menthol. Great freshness in the mouth, going onto powerful yet fine tannins. Nice finish between tannins and freshness. Very long aromatic persistency with notes of fruits in alcohol.
