Intense, beautifully bright deep purple colour. The bouquet is very fresh with deep, ripe aromas. The palate is smooth and voluptuous, developing a beautiful smooth, full-bodied texture with black fruits aromas, mocha, dark chocolate, hint of menthol. This wine reveals a precise, meticulous, very balanced structure, with refined tannins and a superb finish. Its generous, elegant, distinguished style promises an excellent great future.
