TASTING NOTES |
Very intense and deep, with very well integrated and high-quality oak. Ripe and fresh black fruits and plum predominate with chocolate notes and hints of tobacco leaf. It has a mineral character that highlights the smell of the earth, mixed with aromas of aromatic plants. Voluminous, full, and broad with very fine and noble tannins. Friendly and tasty, with a lot of flavor, complex, elegant and long.
