Tasting notes

Bright Ruby. Stunning concentration of fragrances. Its ethereal fruity, flowery and balsamic notes strike for their fresh elegance. Notes of cherry, sour cherry, black cherry, morello cherry, violet, mint, aniseed, cinnamon. All its splendour is expressed in the palate with an extraordinary balance between the concentration of acidity and elegance. The typical notes of red fruit extended by the sweet tannins and mineral sensations return. Clean, elegant, lingering, delicate.
