Elaboration and Aging
- Colour Dark red, bright and deep, with intense ruby reflections.
- Smell intense, alive and of great complexity. At first we distinguish intense notes of red and black fruits (currants, raspberries and blackberries), perfectly accompanied by sweet spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), black pepper, toasted aromas and licorice.
- In mouth highlights the great vivacity of the fruit harvested at its precise point of maturity. It is a wine of great sucrosity, meatiness and a strong tannic structure. The very long and elegant finish, with aromas of spices, raspberries, cocoa and toasted notes, enhances the complexity and artisan elaboration of this extraordinary wine.
