TASTING NOTES 

Deep garnet red in colour. On the nose it is complex and intense, with very ripe red and woodland fruits, blackberries, raspberries. Amazing fruit palette combined with touches of toastiness, cacao, caramel and nutmeg from the ageing process. In the mouth it is powerful on its fruit, voluminous, silky and
glyceric. Tanins are round, ending is long and persitant with
flavours of chocolate, vanilla..

Decanting is strongly recommended. Serve at 18°C.
