Deep ruby in color. A strong aromatic intensity, with notes of black fruits, such as prunes and sour cherries, as well as cocoa and chocolate courtesy of a good maturation. Balsamic aromas of resin and menthol are also prominent, alongside a well-integrated wood element that bestows great complexity. On the palate, there is a nice weight, smooth yet firm tannins, a balanced acidity, notes of black fruit, a slight florality and a long finish.
The wine is aged in used French oak (75%) and used American oak barrels for a period of roughly 12 months. During this time, the final blend underwent numerous tests and analysis. In order to preserve the highest possible quality, this wine was only subjected to filtration prior to bottling.
