The colour, dense as always, that veers towards an inky, blackish violet, is an indicator of the generosity of this wine. Black fruit, quince and spices subtly intertwine to finish on superb jammy aromas.
Mouth-filling and smooth, its notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, liquorice and spices are accompanied by powerful tannins that retain a magnificent and surprising freshness. The richly contrasted balance and originality of this grape variety, painstakingly crafted, cannot help but provoke emotion. Perfect for drinking throughout the seasons.
