Intense ruby-red with garnet-red tinges.
An up-front morello cherry note is followed by black cherry and plum overtones softened by adequate minerality. Slight floral undertones.
Elegant, round and warm, with supple tannins in evidence. The supporting acidity best harmonizes with the roundness given by the alcohol content.
