Charactertistics

Chromatic notes please the eye. Its bouquet releases grassy sensations with notes of alpine hay and forest floor.  A tangible headiness accompanies nuances of fresh fruit, berries, tobacco and sweet spices. This is a wine with good structure and well-balanced acidity and tannins. Its complexity is evident and as time goes by it increases in harmony, freshness, and finesse. Good longevity.
