To the eye, there is a deep cherry in color, clear and brilliant, with purple reflections. The first bouquet is intense and complex. The aging in amphora gives to the wine its unique characteristics with the purest profile. The fine and subtle woody nose has aromas of fresh red fruits, morello cherry, ripe strawberries and menthol. The second nose offers more intense notes of violet with hints of coffee and licorice when allowed to breath. On the palate, the wine is frank, ample, and generous on the palate with balance and length. The tannins are particularly soft followed by good volume on the palate. The oak is well-integrated with the fruit giving its complexity with beautiful long lasting aromas.
