Bright ruby colour. Subtle yet elegant, the complex bouquet displays the concentrated sweetness of vanilla, carob, ripe cherries and raspberry.
A wine of impressive structure and balance, with soft, penetrating tannins. The mouth is persistent, showing echoes of juicy red berries, with a perfect nose-palate convergence.
