Ruby red with light purple shades.
Very attractive impact, thanks to the immediate notes of cut grass and black pepper, with a background of tobacco.
Entry on the palate with a great freshness and drinkability, followed by the balance and roundness at the center of the mouth. Strong varietal notes of spices and cocoa in the aftertaste.
