Mouthful, broad and powerful, marked character expressed when it enters the mouth, tactile sensations of pleasant fruits, tannins that make the swallow silky, fatty. Balsamic finish with a perfectly assembled fruit and wood. The whole is tasty, tannins of great nobility. Deep and powerful aftertaste, pure velvet. Just divine.
