FLAVOUR
Flavour pleasantly full, warm, robust, austere but velvety, harmonious, ethereal, with a spicy aftertaste typical of partial ageing in wood.

AROMA
As a young wine, it releases a complex, intense and rich bouquet of ripe and freshly picked fruit.
As a mature wine: more complex, lightly spiced and softer scents.
