Concentrated, deep garnet in colour, red and black fruit aromas of generously ripe blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant dominate the bouquet.
Initially soft on the palate, the wine develops impressively harmonious tannins and alcohol. The tannins are delicate and create a wine with abundant charm.
