Red-berry, mint and cooking spice aromas lead the nose. The juicy, balanced palate delivers cherry, raspberry jam and cinnamon alongside fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.
by KO, Wine Enthusiast , 2018
A well-structured, long-lived wine with intense garnet red color.
The aroma is intense and fruity with notes of cherry, prune and pleasant tones of cinnamon and toasted hazelnuts.
The taste is austere, full, harmonious and pleasantly tannic, with a persistent finish.
