The wine has a fine colour, dark and deep with a purple-violet tint. The bouquet, already open and expansive, contains suggestions of oak agreeably mingled with red fruit and blackcurrant aromas. In the mouth, roundness combines with a solid tannic structure on ripe fruit flavours and well-integrated oak. The rich flavours and full tannins are expressed in a long, harmonious, complete finish, revealing a wine of considerable potential.
