A high expression wine, perfectly elegant and substantial.
An intense, dark cherry-red coloured wine with cardinal-red hues on the rim. Very ripe fruit aromas, with notes of Mediterranean bushes, vanilla, floral touches, spices and cinnamon. Fresh, fruit-forward and rounded on the palate, with good acidity and well-integrated tannins. Fermented in barrel and aged for 12 months in French and American oak, followed by time spent in bottle.
