Winemaker's Notes

Intense and deep purple red color. Very expressive fruit with outstanding mature berries, forest fruit joined with delicate hints of coffee and toast coming from the barrels. From the start, it's a remarkable expression of Carmenere thanks to the typical fruit like plums, blackberries and some spicy touches. The tannins are polished and long with a medium body at the end.

It expresses marvelously well with game meat, garnished with sweet-and-sour sauces and berries.
