Tasting notes:
Intense and vivid red cherry colour.

The nose is intense and complex. Floral hints of ripe fruit and flowers predominate, accompanied by elegant balsamic, black licorice, spicy pepper and clove notes. An elegant minerality envelops this wine, clearly defining the terroir and its character.

Good attack on the palate. With ripe and rounded tannins, the wine is voluminous and velvety without losing the sensation of freshness. The fruit is in perfect harmony with the aromas of oak and the intense minerality, achieving a deep and complex finish. Harmonious wine, long and persistent.
