As only to be expected, here we have an excellent wine, imposing in its youth, elegant in its maturity.
With a beautiful ruby red robe, the wine boasts excellent cherry glints wrapped in pinkish nuances, in a perfectly clear, bright setting.
Its still varied aromas are the first to appear, well accompanied by soft roasted coffee beans perfectly paired with its final, even more delicate touch of licorice.
Well structured and meaty, with a superb sustained retro-nasal bouquet after filling your mouth with intense flavor; a perfectly balanced wine, lingering and generous in taste sensations.
Serve at 14-16 ºC.
