Tasting Notes
The sample with an intense garnet red color texture, with violet reflections.
On the nose the fruity aromas are intense and recall dark berry fruits such as black currant and blueberry and cherry durone, mineral finish reminiscent of wet stone and slate.
In the mouth the sip is rich and with well-polished tannins. The sensation of a ripe dark berry intense fruit remains, combined with delicate sweet spicy notes. Good persistence and balance between the various components.
It is recommended in combination with grilled meat.
