Tasting Notes

This wine has a dark cherry-garnet colour with a lively, violet rim. On the nose, the aromas are intense, fresh, clean and fruity, with floral, blackcurrant and milk hints. On the palate, it is harmonious, medium-bodied, offering a perfect balance between tannins, freshness and acidity. It is long in the mouth, with a lingering finish and some sweet, fruity hints in the aftertaste.
