Deep purple red.
Large bouquet with strong notes of black cherry and toasted almond, followed by elegant spicy tones with predominant aromas of nutmeg. Light vanilla undertones.
Powerful and fleshy wine, rich of well-integrated tannins. Good match between nose and mouth, with spicy echoes in the aftertaste.
