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. Intense and persistent flavour, fine, ethereal and ample, reminding sometimes the scent of violets, in addition to that of cherry and bramble. Elegant wine, suited for ageing.
Dry and warm taste with a pleasant austerity. Sapid, plenty of structure, a modicum of tannins, it will turn velvety with ageing. Persistent aftertaste.
The product has been aged for 3-6 months in the bottle. The bottles should be stored horizontally.
