This exquisite wine has a beautiful picota cherry color, with high intensity garnet rims.
On the nose it is very powerful and complex, highlighting the ripeness of the grape with aromas of black fruit, cocoa, toasted wood and spicy tones (cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and some vanilla).
On the palate it is soft and sweet, very fruity, with sensations of black fruit, light toasted notes and aromatic woods, with a lengthy, complex finish.
In short, it is a wine that expresses its origin well, to be consumed now and in many years to come.
