Tasting Note: The color is bright, clean, deep ruby ​​color. On the nose it has depth, strength and density. The aromatic character is focused on red fruits – sour cherries, blueberries, red cherries – along with spice, aromatic herbs and a touch of minerality. On the palate it is medium to full bodied with interesting acidity and very high quality tannins, while aromas of red fruits, earth and metal together with tobacco and spices dominate. The aftertaste is long, complex with constant evolution.
