Store up to 3 years in dark and humid place, at 14ºC to 18ºC. Serve at 16ºC to 18ºC.
A bright ruby red wine, deep in colour and intensity with well-defined tears.
Both aromatic and complex on the nose, with dried fruity aromas of raisins and prunes with a hint of tree fruit notes like cherries. Further woody aromas of vanilla and coffee.
Full-flavoured and full-bodied with soft tannins and a pleasant mouth-feel. A complex and long lasting wine, well-balanced both in alcohol and acidity.
