Dark ruby, purple reflections, faint ochre brightening on the rim. Multi-faceted bouquet with dark forest fruits, ripe black cherry, candied violet, some nougat and cedar. Taut and tightly meshed on the palate, red cherry, very lively structure, vivid, ripe tannins, elegant and long. Has charm and definite ageing potential; an irresistible wine with great drinking flow.
