Winemaker notes

Wine color is dark cherry with burgundy hues.

Extremely long and with exquisite finesse on the nose, its mouth starts light and crisp evolving towards amplitude and depth with a smooth velvety touch.

Dark stone scents and flavours provide complexity to its ripe black and red fruit.

Its delicious freshness goes along the whole way.
