Tasting Notes
Limpid, with an intense ruby color with evident garnet hints, consistent.
The olfactory examination highlights a kaleidoscopic range of intense and fine quality aromas. Hints of pot pourri of red flowers are accompanied by broad aromas of small berries such as blackberry and currant, with black cherry and pomegranate jam. The olfactory bouquet is completed by hints of spices such as cloves and cinnamon embellished with a cigar box nuance.
The sip is important, structured and very elegant. The tannins are perfectly balanced and silky. Very persistent, it gives an aftertaste of ripe fruit corroborated by an important note of sweet spices.
