Tasting notes
Deep ruby-red colour with garnet reflections. On the nose it has a charming and structured bouquet displaying red fruit, blackberry, plum and liquorice with hints of vanilla, cream and leather. On the palate it is full-bodied, dry and intense, but with a bright fruit profile. Long and persistent aftertaste.
