TASTING NOTE

It is a rich, flavourful red that displays great varietal typicity, with a deep, cherry red colour (very opaque), nicely focused aromas of ripe plum, and characteristic oak-imparted notes: toasted nuts and dried fruit, vanilla, and cinnamon. It also presents a balsamic quality and notes reminiscent of roasted, red bell pepper. The wine undergoes a 12-month barrel regime in French and American oak, followed by an average of 2 years in bottle. Big, unctuous, and persistent on the palate, with a seductive silky texture and firm tannins that will see the wine mature elegantly in the bottle for at least 5 years. A remarkably round, modern Mediterranean wine.
