Tasting notes

Of an impenetrable and dense ruby colour and an intense and wide flavour, in which the fragrance of mature fruits is dominant, starting with the blackberry, the cherry and the blackcurrant, followed by notes of tobacco and hints of sweet spicesvanilla and cinnamon and with an almost balsamic final. It presents itself strong and well structured to taste, with a great full body and a remarkable freshness. The tannin is well integrated. The final is long and really pleasant with a bittering note.
