Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Of intense ruby red color, the nose reveals elegant balsamic notes mixed with hints of flower petals, cherry liqueur, licorice and chocolate. The taste is warm but pleasant, with a happy balance between the great freshness and full-bodied and generous.

(2009 Vintage) Intense ruby red color with whiffs of cherry and fresh berries in the nose. The dry wine, with elegant, balanced tannins and minerals, is characterized by a good acidity and a long, persistent finish.

    (2005 Vintage) This bright ruby wine opens with a very bright cherry bouquet with hints of oak and pepper. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is round, juicy, savory, with soft plum and berry flavors....
