Tasting
Tasting notes:

The color is deep garnet red, lively, bright, with light orange highlights. Very complex aromas, initially intriguing notes of rose and violet, opens to notes of tobacco, truffles and coffee to the end with an explosion of spices and a subtle vanilla aroma and terroir. In the mouth it is perfectly balanced, robust, with a long and elegant finish.
