Tasting notes

Colour : Very deep Aromas : Very expressive on the nose, with red and black fruits and spices (notably fine peppery notes), which bring complexity and elegance to the whole. Palate : The attack is very smooth and gives way to an assertive tannic structure that accompanies the wine over its length. Finishes with spices and subtle ageing notes.
