tasting notes
Dark violet colour with red roses and fuchsias touches, with elegant ending maroon.Medium intensity colour. In the nose is intense, highlighting the balsamic and menthol combined with some toasted wood. Once aerated in the cup red fruit starts out, blackberries and tree strawberry. Finally the smoked and vanilla that remind they return and remember us his stay in the barrel.Taste is fleshy, with a good body. The fruit is coming back, especially plum and blackberry, with powerful and balanced tannins. Finish with a mineral sensation, leaving a persistent and pleasant aftertaste.
