A complexe wine, with a lot of harmony and elegance. With the deep red colour, the nose is distiguished with the red fruits and spices, following by the light aromas of cofee and leather. The palate reveals the wine perfectly balanced with the strong but silky tannins. Long finish.

“Deep dark ruby colour, violet reflections. Fresh dark berry fruit on the nose, underlaid with delicate spicy notes, nuances of blackberries and liquorice. Juicy, balanced, elegant texture, well balanced tannins, well structured, already easy to drink, red cherries on the finish…” – Falstaff
