Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a brilliant ruby red color of considerable depth. The wine's aroma gives impressions of smoke and cedarwood. It is developing a bouquet that is becoming more truffle-like and earthy with age. In the mouth, the wine displays a round and full entry on the palate with broad and soft tannins. The evolution of its flavor is a rich and velvety impression with a firm finish.

Alcohol: 13.8% by volume
