TASTING NOTES

LOOK: Lovely and attractive ruby red colour with orange hues.

SMELL: On the nose, toasted wood, as well as a noble fruity character, can be perceived. There are hints of tobacco, chocolate, cocoa, roasted aromas, and even balsamic hints. These give it a marvellous smell—powerful, elegant and with a lot of personality.

TASTE: It is smooth, elegant and temperamental on the mouth. It reminds us of black plum compote and dates, giving this wine depth and structure.
