With a red ruby colour, this wine has intense red fruit notes with hints of spice and garrigue aromas. Lively and direct attack on the palate, the mid-palate is more intense with a soft and fruity finish. The well concealed tannins have created a balanced and elegant wine. A significant complexity between tannins and mineral aromas.
