The color is deep, with a garnet hue deepened by purple tinges. The nose shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit, dark cherries, blackberries and black currants that evolve in the glass to reveal slightly woody and smoky notes, together with a hint of coffee. Spices, and especially grey pepper, add lift and harmony to this already rich aromatic palette. The wine is fresh and lively in the mouth, with persistent flavors and good length. It is solidly built around a good tannic structure, true to its origins. The texture is silky and the balance fine.
