A beautifully deep ruby red colour, which reveals an astonishing aromatic spectrum, complex with primary notes of mature red fruits and spices. The palate is very powerful concentrated with soft and gentle tannins that caress the palate and then seduce it with never-ending sweetness of fruit. It is a veritable fairytale in a glass!
