Deep and intense ruby red colour.
Complex aromas on the nose where mature fruit combines with more vegetal nuances, all woven through with spicy, as well as, tertiary veins (hay and grass, cinnamon and cloves, leather and cocoa).
On the palate the wine is generous, expansive and full, particularly persistent and extremely well balanced given the great complexity on the nose.
The finish is lengthy and strikingly long.
