Written Notes

Deep and brilliant rubi red color with blue and purplish hues around the rim. Sweet and delicate aroma which evolves and slowly reveals a great complexity and intensity as it develops in the glass. Aromas of plums and fresh red berries along with a delicate floral note. It shows a very soft attack in mouth to then surprise with complex, intense and concentrated flavors and a lingering aftertaste. Soft and sweet tannins. With vanilla notes and soft toast flavor which denote it is mildly aged in the most delicate French oak barrels for 14 months.

Remarkable varietal typicity together with the extraordinary freshness and particular fruity expression, typical of the grapes from this vineyard. An elegant and intense wine, complex and balanced. It has an aging potential which makes it worthy of aging for at least 10 years. It is recommended to decant the wine before drinking. Best served at 15º-16 °C.

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Multi-layered with aroma reminiscent of blackberry, black cherries, incense, white pepper and mild spics, discreet roasting aroma. On the palate well structure with decent acidity, complex flavour yet a bit closed. Excellent length, a wine with great potential.
