Deep red color. Very intense and complex aroma dominated by ripe black fruits, blackberries, cassis, floral aromas of violet and some spicy notes that result from “elevage” in the barrels. Also, noticeable aromas of evolution in the bottle, all contributing to further complexity. Dense, concentrated wine with well-balanced acidity, firm and well-integrated ripe tannins, and a range of sensations of richness and strength. These characteristics together with intensive retronasal aroma, gives it a long and persistent finish. A wine for ageing.
