Aromas of strawberry, roses, vanilla and sweet spices on the nose, plenty of volume and richness on the palate, where the aromas of the oak balance with the pleasant acidity and the fruity aftertaste. The wine’s aromatic power and tannic structure reveal strong character and great ageing potential.
