Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Ruby red color, with a vibrant and generous aroma. The first flowery notes, reminiscent of sweet violet, are followed by hints of cherry and red berries with delicate spicy tones of vanilla and cloves due to the ageing in wood. The finish is reminiscent of plum jam. The attractive smoothness of the flavor is a result of a good balance between tannin profile, alcohol and fruity body. The length on the palate is impressive.
