Tasting Notes

Very dark, with blueish-violet shades and high viscosity; An enormous flavour concentration, based on very ripe seductive dark fruits like roasted aromas of plums, cassis, and dark cherries combined with currant, toasty, coffee, mokka aromas. It shows a perfect harmony of alcohol and lively acidity full-bodied, ripe and rich tannins and a lovely sweet mouthfeel.  The secret of this wine is its perfect sugar balance.
It never feels sticky sweet or tiring!
