TASTING NOTES

Wine with a cherry color, conserving tones of violet.   Very intense scents, combining wild red fruits with a lightly toasted barrel, maintaining its mineral personality.  Meaty flavor at entry of the palate, with tannins well integrated and a good acidity  that give it a persistent finish.  The backbone of this wine is without a doubt the equilibrium of tannin-alcohol-polyphenols accompanied by a good pH.

 

ALCOHOL
14,5% vol.
