What Does It Taste Like?
This wine has intense red color with some violet tones. The aromas are reminiscent of cherries and blackcurrants, and the dark fruits tones are complemented with vanilla and toasted touches of oak. In the mouth it is juicy, well-bodied with soft tannins and great persistency.
