With an intense red color, it has notes of red fruit, such as cherry and plum combined with "nuanes" of chocolate, mocha coffee and spices; in the mouth it is full, with ripe fruit combined with fine and elegant but firm tannins that give it a complex and very persistent structure. This wine has an excellent bottle aging potential.
