Typical winey with delicate scent of fruit peach, sage, broom flower and whitetorn as well as scent of balsamic herbs which leave a beautiful note. Fresh with a good texture and excellent aromatic consistence, it has a great balance, firmness, roundness, non-acid with a beautiful persistence and a pleasantly bitterish end.
With an intense, ruby-red color, this wine offers immediate lush and complex aromas of fruit and spice. It is full bodied, and has a warmer, more aggressive alcohol content than some might be used to, yet it still retains excellent balance due to its soft tannins and bright acidity.
Great structure with intense ruby red color and garnet reflections. It offers the palate an elegant, dry and velvety taste. This is a wine that gives good results from the time of release, although it is capable of improving over many years in a bottle as the aromas develop and the tannins soften.
An intense purple colour in the glass, tending towards amber with a little bit of aging. This wine has a very solid structure due to a relatively high alcohol and the balance between soft tannins and acidity. It is fruity, with notes of plums, cherry marmalade and tobacco and spicy too with an aftertaste of cocoa, coffee and vanilla.
