Tasting Notes
Limpid, intense ruby ​​red color with tawny textures, consistent.
The range of perfumes is wide and complex. Floral notes intertwine with hints of ripe fruit, almost in jam, such as apricot and plum. Hints of sweet spices and toasted notes reminiscent of hazelnut.
The sip is important, well balanced in its components, the tannic texture important, but very pleasant and well polished. Very persistent with an aftertaste of spices and precious woods.
A meditation wine, to be tried with dry pastries.
