Tasting notes
Lively Deep ruby red with light garnet hues. Aromas of great personality, at the start fruity: blackcurrant, blueberry, black mulberry followed by balsamic notes of eucalyptus and laurel. The aromas open up well to spices (liquorice, black pepper and nutmeg) to bring out hints of coffee and cocoa. The impact on the palate is rich, with great personality and enveloping. integrated tannins and with a savoury finish. The fruitiness in the mouth is accompanied by well integrated tannins with a savoury finish. The palate is balanced, with an enduring persistence of blackberry, black cherry and liquorice.
