Tasting Notes: Intense and concentrated garnet colour. Intense, fresh and complex aroma, still young. Aromas of forest fruits, rockrose flower, truffle, earthy nuances and very elegant toasted and smoked flavours stand out. In the tasting the freshness is dominant, with a balanced and complex structure, integrated in mature tannins and a very firm acidity. The finish is rich and persistent, based on the elegance and complexity of the fruit.
