Tasting
Tasting notes:

Intense ruby red colored wine. The bouquet is rich, intense and complex with a stunning concentration of fragrances. Its fruity, flowery and balsamic notes strike for their fresh elegance. Notes of black cherry, morello cherry, violet, mint and cinnamon. On the palate it is full-bodied with typical notes of red fruits complementing a velvety tannin and a mineral sensation. Clean, elegant, lingering.
