Charactertistics

Fine chromatic array, restrained intensity, stable over time. The bouquet is rich, full and lingering and recalls fresh fruit and berries with sensations of sweet spices, alpine hay and forest floor. Very good structure; acidity and tannins are present in a pleasant balance. This wine is at the height of its reputation
