Wine tasting note
Sight: Attractive purple cherry tone, clean, with hues of blue and a good intensity.
Nose: Expressive and well defined tertiary aromas (tobacco, cinnamon, chocolate), fruity (glace strawberries and dry cherry) and spicy (licorice, clove and balsamic).
Mouth: Balanced and fresh, with a good concentration and acidity, fresh tannins, red fruits (strawberries, cherries) and a tertiary long finish (tobacco, licorice).
