Winemaker's Notes

The wine presents beautiful light amber hues. The nose id powerful and ripe, marked by black fruits and a touch of dark chocolate. The toasty vanilla notes obtained from the barrels are elegant and fine, offering a perfect balance with the fruit of the wine. The mouth is rich, concentrated, warm and mellow finishing on gentle tannins.
