Attractive hue and good intensity of colour lasting over the time. Intense, full and lingering bouquet with hints of liquorice and mint and sensations of mature fruit. Ethereal sensations with notes of resin and sweet spices develop with aging. Full-bodied in the mouth, good tannins and acidity that evolves and finds its balance over the years. Excellent longevity.
