An intense, deep bright garnet, complex bouquet, with aromas laden of ripe red fruits (strawberry, current); very clean and elegant. The palate is juicy, with a very present ripe fruit, creamy notes, toffee, liquorice and balsamic reminiscent of scrub. Very elegant and well-structured, round, lingering and persistent.
