Winemaker's Notes

Rather deep ruby robe with brilliant purple tints. Red fruits (strawberry, redcurrant) predominate on the nose, associated to fragrance of flowers (succulent rose, peony).Beautiful structure in the mouth and soft silky tannins. The flavour is full with vitality ; good aromatic persistency.
