Clean and brilliant aspect with an extraordinarily intense layer of cherry red color with purple tones.
Complex, straightforward, and elegant aromas of dried fruits, balsamic notes and liquorice over a well integrated backdrop of green pepper, clove and cocoa notes.
Mouth entry is kind, sweet and unctuous, showing off good acidity that makes it fresh and pleasant. Round, structured, meaty and well balanced, with ripe tannins. Long and lingering velvety finish, slightly bitter. A single varietal wine with extremley fragrant aftertaste reminding us of Matura Tinta grape.
