Additional Information

Intense ruby red with violet nuances. Elegant and complex, it recalls sour cherries and violets, with refined woody notes of cocoa and coffee. Warm and velvety, with solid structure and complex, the wine has slightly balsamic fruitiness, however it is lively and pleasantly fresh with balanced acidity, intriguing tannins, and a finish that is long, with spicy closing notes.

    "Underbrush, violet, rose and wild herb aromas mingle together on this fragrant, elegant red. The enveloping palate has concentration and finesse, delivering fleshy black cherry, blackberry and baking spice along-side tightly knit but velvety tannins. Drink through 2032."
