The colour is ruby red with reflexes verging on garnet. The perfume is intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, enriched with spices redolent of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it explodes in all its fineness and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. Excellent body that renders the flavour harmonious and persistent. Excellent nose-mouth correspondence.
There is a tension between the strawberry and cherry fruit flavors in this red, which has a savory side, evoking wild Mediterranean herbs, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors. Dense, burly tannins underline it all and the finish is long and satisfying. Best from 2025 through 2043. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
