This wine has an intense Cardinal purple colour with a garnet-coloured rim. It exhibits the rich depth typical of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes and dense, abundant tears. The aromas of flowers and fresh fruit fill the senses, later giving way to tones of vanilla, cacao, roast and new leather, which confirm the harmonious union of the wood and the grape. Hints of sandalwood, spices, tobacco and licorice create a lasting and persistent memory.
The wine enters the mouth elegantly, with body, filling the palate with freshness. As it moves forward, it is powerful and complex and leaves a long, intense aftertaste of very ripe grape and round, noble tannins. This is a serious, complex wine, available now, but with long life ahead of it as well.
