"Coffee, tobacco and oak on the nose. Juicy and balanced on the palate with pronounced blackcurrant and smoke spice. Good expression of black fruit on the finish."

Product Description:

"Beautiful garnet color which has brilliant reflections and great intensity. The nose, marked by hints of blackcurrant, evolves on the second nose to slightly smoky and woody aromas tinged with sweet spices and black fruits. Liquorice brings a certain freshness. On the palate the sweet and warm attack is very pleasant. The mid-palate, full and silky, does not erase a beautiful tannic structure that gives it character. The whole, very balanced and harmonious, finishes on a dominance of cherries notes. It is an elegant and distinctive wine." - Winery
