Tasting note: Lively, clean, medium depth, garnet–red with an incipient pink rim. Intense aromas with outstanding notes of redcurrants, raspberries, wild blackberries and ripe red plums creating a complex bouquet together with the balsamic notes from the barrel: vanilla, cloves, coffee, caramel and brioche. Very tasty in the mouth, evincing the brand’s distinctive classic texture. Fresh, vibrant and well-balanced, with amiable sweet tannins.
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.
