It has a fruit aroma, emphasizing red fruits and spices, perfectly integrated with the wood of the oak, giving the wine a touch of complexity.
It is well structured in the mouth, with a striking presence of its tannins, reflecting the typical characteristics of the tannat grape, but at the same time rounded and smooth, giving the wine a velvety touch.
