Still with long life ahead of it, this wine opens and closes in the various stages of development clearly expressing the richness of the fruit and the energy that comes from it. This is also thanks to the good acidity that supports it, and to the excellent extraction of tannins. It is dark ruby red. From the point of view of the scents, you can feel berries, in particular black cherry; a bit balsamic in nose and mouth. Spicy notes. In constant development, it is never ordinary. We are proud of it, thanks also to you who follow us. This wine has conquered the palates of many people, bringing us many rewards, with a “Wine Awards” of the famous German magazine Der Feinschmecker as the best wine of the year.
