Of carmine-red colour, this wine feels intense right from the beginning. Spicy aromas of roasted paprika, black pepper and strawberries syrup stand out on the nose. Smooth floral aromas like violets, accompanied by subtle touches of bittersweet chocolate, dried tobacco leaves and dry earth. This extremely fresh wine offers very soft and silky tannins on the palate. Its nice acidity and great volume allow predicting a good ageing potential
