Gorgeous color ruby closed. Very intense aroma of black fruit resembling blueberries and blueberries. Complex, delicate notes of wood, vanilla and spices. Mineral.
On the palate the structure appears large, the soft tannins well rounded by black fruit, balanced with a silky texture and a remarkable concentration. Deep. Long finish with great complexity and special precision
