Winemaker's Notes

Color: Virtually impenetrable purplish-red.

Bouquet: Also remarkably complex because of the wine's youthfulness. On one hand, smoky scents of tobacco and licorice and, on the other, fully ripe red and black fruit.

Flavor: Power held in check. That sums up the sensations communicated by this wine because of its impressive structure of tannins and classic acidity still to be smoothed. The length and gentleness of the finish is immediately appreciated.

Conclusions: A wine that rewards those who are willing to wait but it can be consumed immediately in combination with imposing game dishes.

Alcohol: 13.60% by volume
