(Bekaa Valley) The wine has a beautiful and intense ruby red color with nuances which already tend to garnet red, little transparency. The nose denotes an olfactory profile pretty rich and complex, of good personality and very clean. There can be perceived aromas of black cherry, black cherry jam, cherry, strawberry, raspberry, black currant followed by aromas of caper, cloves and boletus mushroom. The attack to the mouth is tannic and alcoholic, however balanced, with a good correspondence to the nose and of good body. The finish is persistent with pleasing flavors of black cherry and black currant. A wine which still shows its youth and that could improve with some year of aging, anyway the wine can be drunk even now.

(Bekaa Valley) Simply a great wine. It shows a beautiful and intense ruby red color with nuances of garnet red, little transparency.

There can be perceived good aromas of black cherry, blueberry, plum and black currant followed by clean aromas of cocoa, eucalyptus, licorice, anise, tobacco, vanilla and a hint of wood aromas. The mouth reveals a good correspondence to the nose and, despite of a tannic attack, tannins already have a good agreeability and the wine is surely balanced by alcohol. A full bodied wine. Finish is persistent with pleasing and intense flavors of black cherry and raspberry. A truly elegant wine and very well made; no matter it can be drunk in its current state, it will give its best with a further period of aging of some years.
