Tasting notes and sensory properties
As a result of a long refinement and thanks to its natural characteristics, this wine is robust in character, full bodied and of rich structure. It helds up well over the years. In the glass it is a fascinating wine of ruby red colour with garnet-red reflections which tend to become orange over time. The smell is clear, deep and intense with a typical scent of withered flowers, spices, mulch and undergrowth. The taste is warm, soft, velvety, harmonious and with a long persistent finish.
Storage and evolution
This wine reaches its optimal taste 4-6 years after the harvest but it sensibly changes according to the harvested vintage.
Excellent with all kinds of red meat, according to the wine and harvested vintage, and with medium or long maturing cheese. This precious wine is ideal as a partner for an evening with friends.
