Wine Details



Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) In the mouth the wine shows a gigantic size. The taste attracts attention by the tempting fruit flavors. Going from red berries and black fruits to soft herbs and reglisse.

Brick red color, with garnet tinges, shiny and limpid. Aromas of black currant, slightly wooded taste with notes of vanilla. Good attack inmouth, well balanced and neat. Fine tannins at the end.
