Sample, clear, garnet red color, not intense, with light orange textures.
On the nose the bouquet of hints is broad, rich and well defined. It opens with notes of pot pourri of withered red flowers, followed by hints of red fruit jams reminiscent of berry jam, dried dates and black cherry in syrup, all enriched by notes of licorice and caramel caramel with hints of leather and leather goods.
The sip is sweet, never cloying, perfectly balanced, intense, with a long persistence. A sample of excellent structure. It is recommended to combine it with a dark chocolate soufflé.
