Profile: impenetrable ruby red, a beautiful density in the glass.
The scents go from red fruits, red currant, blackberries and
spices such as cloves, cinnamon and chocolate. In the palate
the wine is well-rounded and velvety, engaging all senses with
majestic balance. The long persistence allows to fully enjoy the
aromatic complexity, in which the spiciness is prevalent.
