Tasting Note

Intense cherry color, bright, thick, glyceric and elegant with a lot of color intensity. Complex aroma with jam, rose, plums, raspberry, orange and licorice. Hints of under forest. In the mouth a feeling of fresh acidity that combines with very well polished tannins. Remarkable, balanced structure, with well integrated and sweet wood. Essence of the territory.
