The colour is an intense and transparent ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose, full and harmonic, is an example of typicality, with pleasant prune and sour cherry notes that are perfectly blended with vanilla, liquorice, sweet tobacco and old leather notes. It is warm and generous in the mouth, traditional, with ripe, tightly knit and silky tannins. The acidity is perfectly balanced, the finish is extremely persistent, the aftertaste is flavourful. One can foresee a long and bright future! Match this wine with game, braised and roast red meat, with seasoned cheese.

Wine EnthusiastThe color on this is surprisingly evolved, showing more brick than garnet, while the nose offers underbrush, tobacco, fennel and red berry. The palate is closed and rather lean, offering raw red cherry, licorice, menthol and mineral alongside assertive but fine-grained tannins.
