Deep, dense, crimson garnet. Intense concentration.
Intense delicate aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and sherry. Upon breathing, it opens up with scents of moka and liquorice bringing further complexity.
The immediate impression is richness together with a cohesive balance between the fruit, the softness of the tannins and the wine’s effortless concentration. A powerful, intense, sun soaked wine with remarkable freshness and considerable length – it is a true expression of our terroir as in the previous vintages. Already supple, it is a wine that can be drunk now yet has the character and structure for ample ageing.
Tips on service:
Serve at 17 °. We recommend to decant this wine two hours before service to reveal its full character.
