Degustation notes

Deep, dark cherry red – almost black – with spicy barrique flavours of vanilla, caramel, coconut and cinnamon, the ripe-berry fruitaromas take a back seat. Reveals an attractive concentration on the palate, displaying plenty of finesse despite the high tannin content. Is multilayered and complex with good body and fine spiciness. Refreshing tartness gives elegance, in a long, aromatic finish.
