Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Deep and dense ruby red, with youthful hues

Bouquet: Still fresh, ample and deep. The characteristic varietal fruit is framed by the noble oak spices deriving from the casks.

Taste: Great structure. The full body envelopes an important quantity of mature tannins, rendering the impact pleasant from this 18° C very youthful phase. Long and warm aftertaste.
