Tasting Notes
Sample with an intense ruby red color, almost impenetrable, with a good consistency.
The nose opens with delicate hints of red berries, cherries in alcohol. There are toasted notes and a nuance of licorice in the finish.
The sip is rich, with an important but not aggressive tannin. A structured wine, with a wide sip and well balanced in its parts. A pleasant balsamic note remains in the mouth. Recommended in combination with carré of beef in a pepper crust.
