Intense and vibrant ruby red color. Excellent expression and good varietal typicity, added to the minerality of the terroir. Fine spicy nose of black pepper and cloves. Notes of fruit and smoked peppers. The mouthfeel is creamy and balanced. Very good structure with bright acidity and a long finish. Rounded tannins due to aging in wood.
