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.
