Dark red, with a purple border. The nose is rich, pure and complex, with black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, lots of roundness, with nice refined tannins. Finish is very long, with notes of black cherry and black berry, with a silky touch on the tongue. A feeling of youth and freshness emerges. The aromas given by the ageing in oak are still visible, with hints of spices and roasting, but they will be soon integrated into the wine and will make it really complex. A wine with a great cellaring potential and with an impressing aromatic expression.

Juicy and lively, with good energy coursing through the core of plum, anise, blackberry and fruitcake flavors, while sweet spice and juniper hints fill the finish. Offers a chewy feel without being heavy. Best from 2016 through 2023.

Vivid ruby-red. Spicy red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by candied lavender, coconut and smoky minerals. Juicy raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors show good clarity and a smoky mineral undertone that gains power with air. Offers an appealing blend of power and vivacity, finishing with gentle grip, a hint of sweet oak spices and subtle tannins.
