A highly rated wine, considered one of the best in the region
This wine is complex, elegant and requires time to be discovered in all its aspects. Notes of raspberries and red cherry with herbs, cedar wood, raisins, ginger and mint. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavours combined with a juicy, harmonious acidity and silky tannins.
