Ruby red in color, this wine delivers aromas of vanilla, toasted oak and plum, with flavors of licorice and spice on the long, dry finish.
It has a well-defined mulberry, cocoa and mint-scented bouquet that unfurls temptingly in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and crisp acidity, serving up notes of blackberry, melted asphalt, undergrowth and a sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of white pepper on the entry. It is underpinned by firm tannins: a solid structure that is classic in style, but one that melts and coalesces beautifully over the course of twenty minutes in the glass.
Redondo, astringente, fuerte frutos rojos maduros. Honesto en nariz y boca. Chocolate bitter, cuero
Big and dry. Not very fruity but complex and earthy. Good for lovers of big dry style.
Needs few minutes to b aired... And then very drinkable wine. Will buy more for sure
