THE SOMMELIER'S COMMENTS

  • Great wine that optimally interprets the company's choices aimed at the highest quality. Intense red color tending to garnet, with a dense and impenetrable texture, clear and with an excellent consistency; the nose is very persistent and particularly elegant, with evident notes of violets, red fruits and blueberries, plum and ripe morello cherry jam followed by spicy scents. The taste is full, balanced and harmonious, of great complexity and elegance. The tannins are thick and round and the aromatic persistence is very long, captivating and of refined finesse.
