Visually, the color is very dark typical of well ripened fruit. On the nose, it offers floral and fruity aromas that will develop into more complex notes, thanks to the bottle ageing. However, subtle touches of licorice, incense and spices can be perceived from the very beginning. On the palate, it is intense, round and persistent, typical characteristics of an excellent vintage. The tannins, although highly concentrated, are sweet and smooth. This wine exhibits a remarkable balance in terms of acidity, which allows for a long bottle ageing of at least 15 years if properly cellared.
