Characteristic

Wine with attractive and good intensity of colour, able to withstand with time. Intense, full and lingering bouquet with hints of noble wood and mint and sensations of mature fruit. As times goes by ethereal sensations with notes of resin and sweet spices come up. Full-bodied palate, well-structured, with good acidity and tannins that evolve and find their balance over the years. Wine with good aging potential.
