Producer Tasting Notes

A wine with a deep, concentrated colour. The bouquet is equally delightful, with its intense range of aromas dominated by ripe fruit with floral and spicy overtones. This wine is charmingly balanced and generous on the palate with perfectly smooth tannins. The finish is long and aromatic. In short, a wine with an astonishing personality, embodying both power and elegance.
