Clean and bright, deep violet. It reveals floral notes of violets together with fruit hues such as black cherries, typical of the variety. Its barrel aging adds aromas of cinnamon and coconut, contributing to is aromatic complexity. Alluring, unctuous and round. With silky tannins and velvety texture, the persistence of fruity and floral aromas is outstanding, resulting in an elegant, meaty and mouthwatering wine.
"Medium bright ruby. Brooding, slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and mint. The surprisingly sweet and fat in the mouth, with cassis, licorice and dark chocolate flavors that are primary without coming off as austere. This has the stuffing to support its substantial dusty tannins."
