On the palate, the taste is dry, full, harmonious and slightly tannic, with an elegant aftertaste of toasted almond and f...

The wine has intense, fragrant and elegant aromas of blackberries and raspberries, with violet and Florentine iris notes. On the palate, the taste is dry, full, harmonious and slightly tannic, with an elegant aftertaste of toasted almond and fruits of the forest. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
