Description

Substantial wine that develops an elegant and fine complexity with years passing.

Of a lively ruby-red colour, which will turn to garnet with ageing. Produces tears in the glass, which indicates a comparatively strong wine. Intense and persistent flavour, fine and ethereal, with the fruitiness of bramble and prunes, turning into spicy notes and a touch of vanilla with ageing. Dry and supple taste, well balanced with style and character. Good length in the aftertaste, reminding of vanilla.

The product has been aged for 3-6 months in the bottle. The bottles should be stored horizontally.
