Tasting

Eye: Deep, intense ruby red color with hints of violet. The wine is bright and displays a fine concentration in the glass. 

Nose: Wonderful aromas of fruity freshness, redolent of blackberries. With aeration, the wine reveals greater complexity, with hints of rosemary and thyme. 

Palate: A fantastic fruity attack, underlined by notes of black fruit and olive tapenade. The freshness on the palate delivers all the personality of this wine – the power of the Mediterranean style, tempered with a delightful softness in the mouth. The 2016 vintage plunges us straight into the rich sunny character of the Med.
