Aged red wine 2014

TASTING NOTE

Visually, this wine offers a covered red garnet colour. Aromatic notes of blackberry jam, dried thyme, toasted bread, dates, cinnamon and quince on a slightly balsamic base. In the mouth, a subtle and delicate minerality, with a well-crafted structure where there are nuances of candied fruit, caramel, pistachio and coffee beans. Balanced and sturdy, but silky and providing a significantly prolonged persistence.

Alcohol: 15%
