Intense and deep ruby red with evident garnet. The nose is very interesting with beautiful aromas of forest fruits, including blackberry and cherry, with lovely spicy aromas.
Full body with tannic impact in the mouth, dry and well balanced by alcohol. Robust and elegant at the same time with a long finish.
