T A S T I N G N O T E S
This wine shows great diversity of complex aromas, such as red fruits and vanilla. Medium body in
the mouth, it reveals again sensations of red fruit, harmoniously integrated with wood notes and
fine tannins provided by ageing in 250 litres oak barriques. In the aftertaste, develops smooth and
rich flavours, some acidity and complexity, overcoming ripe fruit, chocolate and wood notes. Its
dryness and persistence, combined with its fine elegant tannins, put in evidence its great
gastronomic and evolution potencial. A wine to keep.
