Color: very intense cherry, violet edge. Aroma: with character, candied fruit, dried flowers, dried herbs. Palate: concentrated, fruity, balsamic.

Mivino.es  - December 2018

Fresh, balsamic and with a refined opulence. It starts mineral, with details of mountain herbs, and continues with a background of greater fruity presence. Complex in the mouth, with a delicious and well integrated acidity that makes this wine a very pleasant experience. Persistent, evocative.
