Tasting Notes

It has a brilliant cherry red colour with intense blue – purple glints. Powerful on the nose with a great variety of red and forest fruit aromas (vanilla, liquorice…) and balsamic (eucalyptus) given by the great wood. Liquorice, cedar and smoke aromas, typical of Cabernet Sauvignon variety.

It is soft in the mouth, with a silky, sweet and nice acidity which makes it very fresh, with a long finish and an aftertaste reminiscent of berries and vanilla.
