A wine with remarkable hue and intensity. Stable over time. Full, intense and lingering bouquet. Heady sensations interchanging with notes of mature fruit, noble wood, spice and liquorice. On the palate a great sensation of warmness; acidity and tannins are evident and tending to ripe, long aromatic finishing. This is an outstanding wine with great potential of aging.
