Description of the wine:

The 2017 vintage will be remembered as one of the driest in history.

This has caused a clear advance of the harvesting’s date and a considerable reduction in production.

The result is a wine with an intense garnet color and an extraordinary pure bouquet.

The notes recall spices, cloves and vanilla especially, but also toasted notes of coffee and chocolate.

The wine has a great consistency on the palate, warm structured with a thick tannic texture.

A noble wine, elegant, able to refine for many years in bottle.

To better express the qualities of this wine we recommend a serving temperature of 18-20° C.
