Dark ruby color. Intense and complex bouquet combining fruits of the forest and a hint of spice, with a slight depth of floral notes. Dense and delicious in the mouth, where exquisite tannins reveal refined toasted notes acquired from select oak. Balanced complexity and rich flavors provide good length and tempt a pleasant tasting experience.
Intense, dark cherry-red in color. Complex bouquet that reveals a splendid balance of mature fruit and a delicate touch of spice from the French oak. Powerful in the mouth with sensations of fleshy, crystallised fruit that highlight a pleasant fullness in which the slightly toasted notes from the wood are perfectly integrated.

Wine Spectator(2012 Vintage) Black cherry, currant and floral notes are expressive and alluring, balanced by loamy earth, tobacco and mineral elements that add a savory quality. Firm, well-integrated tannins give support to the polished texture, while orange peel acidity fuels the fresh finish. Drink now through 2027. 10,000 cases imported.–TM
