Tasting Notes

Color Bright Ruby Red
Aromas The first nose presents great aromatic potential of fresh fruits and then explodes in multiple layers of aromas (cherry, violet, menthol,...).
Taste The attack shows a nice and smooth sucrosity, with smoothand elegant tannins. The mid-palate then develops a beautiful minerality and acidity, ending in a finish which leaves the palate lined up with a sensation of silk.
