Complex, intense and refined bouquet elegantly opening with sweet aromas of ripe black cherry and mixed berries, followed by beguiling spicy notes of cocoa and vanilla.
The olfactory harmony continues in your mouth, releasing delicate progressions of fruit and spice. Rich, intense and persistent, with smooth and silky tannins, this is a wine of great balance and luscious elegance.
