A very pretty and balanced red showing berry, chocolate and walnut character. Medium-bodied with a very clean and fresh finish.
by JS, James Suckling , 2017
Ideal with red meats, plates of medium flavors and hard chesses
Color: Red of good intensity.
Nose: Intense aromas resemble ripe cherries and raspberries that combined with the slight vanilla give elegance and fineness to this wine.
Palate: In mouth, it appears soft and silky, with rounds tannins. It is a wine of a medium structure, thought for a short guard, because the freshness and smoothness are its major virtue.
