A fragrant wine which highlights on the nose its intense fruit-driven and floral aromas and the balsamic notes which round off its bouquet. On the palate it appears smooth and velvety, with touches of black fruit jam which make the mouthfeel even more luscious, if that’s possible. A dry, powerful and elegant wine, with structure and smoky touches and sweet spices provided by its stay in oak. A fine, lingering aftertaste and a long evolution in bottle.
