The wine has a rich, clean, intense aroma with a predominance of notes of ripe berries, among which the nuances of currants and blackberries are especially prominent. The bouquet exquisitely accentuates the noble touches of oak, as well as the nuances of menthol, black pepper and cinnamon.
The silky and enveloping taste of the wine reveals a refined sweetish tannin, which provides a good structure and exquisite character of the taste chord. It is dominated by berry notes, framed by strokes of spices. The finish is long, with light nuances of coffee and a delicate sourness.
