Dark red. Good integration of fruits like blackberry and raspberry with a touch of scented wild flowers. Spice suggestions combined with chocolate and new oak aromas. Dominated by wild fruit vanilla and spicy French oak. Although the firm tannins have a unique structure, it reveals a silky texture in the mouth. Due to its great richness and aromatic complexity, it has a long lasting final taste, remaining aromatic notes.
