Tasting Notes

Bouquet

Intense and with a great complexity. Hints of ripe red pulp fruits, black cherries and
spices. After a few minutes in the glass it reveals notes of tobacco, vanilla and leather.

Flavor

Velvety on the palate with fine tannins, well structured and bodied. Its freshness and
minerality perfectly balance the warm fruity notes. Elegant, harmonic
and lingering.
