Dark ruby garnet, good depth of color, purple reflections, brightening to the rim. Fine nuances of licorice, attractive touch of precious oak spice, notes of cherries, some juniper, BITTER chocolate, engaging savouriness. On the palate, full-bodied, elegant, finely extracted sweetness, mineral-undertones cherry fruit. Already very harmonious with finesse, rich structure, elements of roasted aromas on the finish, dark berry fruit on the back palate, already perfect to drink today.
