Gorgeous deep red in colour. The nose is very expressive and complex, pure and fresh, redolent of fruity aromas (wild strawberry, arbutus, Cornelian cherry) and floral notes (rose, violet). Superb start to the palate that is delicate, balanced and round with woody and spicy notes (rosewood, liquorice…). This wine shows nuances of bold tannins, though it is very elegant on the finish, ending on a peaty note for further complexity. Marvellous balance between finesse and structure.
