Achelo shows an intense ruby/purple in color. On the nose, ample and enveloping notes of red and black berry fruit fuse with spicy sensations of vanilla and varietal hints of black pepper typical of Syrah. The palate is ripe and supple with a pleasurable persistence heightened by an aftertaste of black fruit such as cassis and blackberry jam along with vanilla as well.
