Deep and multi-layers flavors of the forest fruit,with mild vanilla notes, blend on the velvety, fruity palates. The wine is rich and harmonious, of powerful structure, succulent tannins and supple acids. In a very long and stable finish, the opulent fruity frame, consisting of the tones of blackberry, blueberry, cranberry and plums, interlaced with the traces of coffee, tobacco and earth.
