Tasting Notes

Eye, bouquet, palate

The wine has a beautiful garnet color with light purple/violine reflections. The nose of this wine presents a complex aromatic palette with beautiful aromas of wild raspberries accompanied by fine notes of blackcurrant and a hint of liquorice. This wine has not yet revealed its full potential and promises to gain further complexity. The mouth is fleshy, dynamic and structured. On the finish, we perceive notes of cocoa.
