Tasting notes

Garnet red colour, translucent, medium-high depth, ruby edges. Its aroma evokes jammy red and dark berry fruits, well balanced with the balsamic, vanilla and toasted notes coming from the wood. On the palate it displays its complexity, with good structure and balance, the predominant flavours being jammy red fruit, with café crème and cocoa notes.
