  • Tasting Notes

    • Wine with a vividly intense colour, deep and impenetrable. Its aroma is profoundly cherry, ripe fruit and balsamic spice. On the palate it is rich and potently warm with a perfectly balanced acidity and minerality that conveys the volcanic nuances of the terrain. Sweet and silky tannins with an intense and persistent aftertaste.
