A brilliant cherry-red colour. Very fruity on the nose, intense black fruit notes such as blackberries and plums, harmonized with subtle spices and hints of chocolate and dried fruit. Good volume on the palate, silky but enveloping tannins, giving a fresh and balanced combination and a lingering finish.
