Organoleptic analysis: intense ruby red colour. The nose is intense, with red fruit, spicy notes with elegant balsamic, dover and cocoa nuances. In the mouth it is warm, full and supple. The aromatic persistence is long and complex, the tannins are tightly knit. Ripe fruit and torrefaction finish. A wine with great character excellent with game, red meat dishes and medium seasoned cheese.
