This wine has a dense, deep red color, shading to cherry at the edge and a seductively, nicely open nose with intense blackberry and cassis aromas and a slightly floral note reminiscent of violet.
From a round and crisp attack with a fine structure of already well-rounded, creamy tannins, it develops an ample and expressive body of red berry fruit with a touch of something mineral.
A seductive wine, its undoubted qualities display all the complexity and harmony of an exceptional vintage and the promise of greater richness to come.
|The wine has a clean, brilliant cherry red colour.
The nose is very attractive, on morello cherry and ripe berry fruit aromas with a highly elegant floral touch. From a round and smooth attack with well-integrated tannins, the wine remains silky while developing a muscular structure on the palate, complex, substantial and full of fruit, with juicy fresh fruit flavours reminiscent of raspberry and black cherry. The refinement, volume and length of the seductive finish show perfect balance in the varietal mix and the typical characteristics of the appellation.
