Garnet colour with purple hue. The nose shows stewed fruit, intense chocolate and cherry. The palate is structured and rich with an elegant minerality. The oaked tannins play with the fruity, silky flesh, and the crisp fruity palate carries to the end with a long, fresh finish. A distinguished and noble wine.
