TASTING NOTES

Ruby robe with lightly bright-red fringes, the nose is powerful with roasted and toasted notes, black pepper and plum marmalade enhanced by a note of leather. The well-rounded mouth displays a good structure. The finish brings back all this wine’s character, with notes of spices, eucalyptus and leather.
