Intense ruby red in color. To the nose rich and powerful, ethereal and very complex. Typically characterized by notes of fruit and aromatic herbs, featuring citrus, cherry, wild berry, mint and oregano. On the palate this wine is very structured, with firm and persistent tannins. A wine that is best expressed with a long bottle aging.
