Tasting note: Medium-high intense, dark-cherry red with a garnet rim. Very intense nose, with a marked fruity character: cranberries, redcurrants and blackberries envelop balsamic aromas of patisserie, cocoa, freshly-ground coffee, cinnamon and liquorice. Intense and well-balanced in the mouth, with an elegant freshness, balance, fine tannins and a smooth finish.
Founded in the 19th Century, growing in the 20th Century and still passionate in the 21th Century. We extract the best from the wise oenological tradition: manufacturing of our barrels, racking by candlelight and long ageing. Combined with the most advanced winemaking technology.
