Intense garnet red in colour with brick-red reflections. On the nose it shows the classic cherry and red berry perfume of the fresh grapes plus a more prune-like fruit character from the contact with the dried grape-skins. The wood ageing adds notes of cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate it is full-bodied and dry with ripe black-cherry fruit. The wine is well structured with soft and rounded tannins and a good balancing acidity, which will allow it to be kept for several more years.
