Attractive ruby color tile middle layer and light shades. Intensely aromatic nose with ostados integrated with ripe fruit and balsamic notes. After some time in the glass, aromas evolve traces of tea, spices and snuff. The attack on the palate is round and harmonious, showing silky tannins but also keeping fresh and lively. The aftertaste is very persistent, recovering memories of toast and raisins.
