Color:Intense ruby red.Aroma:The bouquet is extremely elegant, characterised by fragrant fruit and flower notes. Violet, cherries, wild berries and plums are complimented by spicy hints of tobacco and white pepper grains. Delicate scents of roses and flint linger on the nose.Tasting profile:Intense, velvety and crispy. Sensations of fragrant fresh fruit are accompanied by steady yet gentle tannins that exalt enjoyable spicy flavours. The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, which is incredibly fresh and pleasantly mineral and presents an aftertaste with intriguing notes of rosemary. - Winery

The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, that is incredibly fresh and pleasantly mineral and presents an aftertaste with fascinating notes of rosemary.

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red. The nose immediately shows an outstanding elegance, characterized by particularly fragrant flowery and fruity notes. Violet, cherries, wild berries and plums meet with delicately spicy hints of tobacco and white pepper grains, followed by elegant scents of red roses and flint. Notes of fragrant fresh fruit are accompanied by steady yet gentle tannins, that exalt enjoyable spicy hints. The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, that is incredibly fresh and pleasantly mineral and presents an aftertaste with fascinating notes of rosemary. Not yet reviewed; 2007 vintage rated 92 points by James Suckling: A wine with lots of dried fruits and raisins that turn to cedar and spices. Full and velvety. Juicy finish.
