Deep cherry red with garnet hues. An intriguing range of aromas of ripe red fruits, in particular: black cherry, Maraschino cherries preserved in spirit and raspberries accompanied by spiced notes of roasted coffee beans and carob and a balsamic hint.
The first sip confirms the aromatic impressions and, even with this powerful structure, it is balanced, elegant and harmonious.
It closes long and persistent, held by a good acidity and a lively tannic texture.
