The wine is a brilliant red color with light violet reflections.
The taste of wine is harmonious, rich, full-bodied, with a fine balance between a pleasant acidity and lively minerality, with delicate woody nuances and a long aftertaste.

The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. wine storage capacity is more than 5 years.
