The colour is a dark ruby red with bright reflections. The bouquet is very characteristic and complex, with spicy notes of white pepper, redcurrants, blueberries, citron and a fresh, balsamic note. Lively, flawless and crisp fruit develops dynamically and progressively on the palate. The tannins are tightly woven, sweet and spicy, with an exceptionally fine grain. The long, well-structured finish promises a great outlook. A wine which, even at its tender age, marries character with balance, while concealing great and complex potential.
