This wine presents a beautiful crimson dress brilliant at the brick-red reflections. The first nose is neat and intense. It offers a pretty complex bouquet to the fruity nuances of blackberry, raspberry, of cherry; spiced pepper; undergrowth and of truffle supported by slightly roasted coffee notes. With aeration this bouquet decorates more advanced notes of leather, stew and major notes of blackcurrant and liquorice.
