Charactertistics

Beautiful colour with restraining intensity which linger over the time. Floral scents with notes of fresh fruit and spices. Smooth palate, tangy with good structure; equilibrated acidity and tannins in appreciable quantity tending to ripe. This is a wine with good longevity; with aging it reaches a great elegance with pronounced minerality and lively personality.
