Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red. In the nose it´s complex and attractive, we can perceive red fruit such as raspberries and strawberries embraced by an exotic and fresh touch of eucalyptus. Barrel aging brings out sweet notes like caramel. A full bodied wine, balanced, with ripe tannins that make it a remarkable example of the noble varietal.
