This is a garnet red wine with ruby nuances.
The bouquet is ethereal and very intense, with spicy hints of cinnamon, notes of vanilla and wild berries, and the slight touch of liquorice which is typical of wines aged in accordance with tradition.
Warm, rich and nicely dry on the mouth, this is a well-structured, balanced wine which will have a long cellar life.
