Tasting notes The color is very deep and intense purple. Οn the nose it is dense, concentrated and elaborate but elegant. Aromas of ripe fruits such as blackberries and black raspberries, spicy characteristics, smoke and notes of leather fill the nose. On the mouth it is silky yet robust and framed by delicate tannins. A balanced acidity offers flavors of ripe fruits, cloves, black pepper and a touch of herbs. The aftertaste is very long and of great complexity.
