The wine is dense ruby color with dark purple reflections.
Taste wine powerful, bright, juicy, rich, well-structured and balanced, with a velvety texture, fruity, spicy and mineral shades. The finish is long, with notes of ripe black fruit and spices.
The complex, enveloping, almost sweet flavor of the wine is filled with tones of red and black fruit, non-acute spices, plum, blueberry jam, dressed leather, baked oak wood and underbrush. In the final manifest nuances of black and green pepper and balsamic vinegar.
