This wine is deep garnet red with amber-coloured highlights. It has an expansive nose, with notes of roses, violets, fruits of the forest, chocolate, vanilla and black pepper.
On the mouth it is soft and silky, with tannins that are still young without being aggressive, and a backdrop of fine minerality showing floral and balsamic notes.
