Tasting notes

This monovarietal merlot stands out for its balsamic, mineral and spicy notes that cover the black and red berries at the beginning, but then have to surrender to them as they appear and amplify in the glass during the tasting. Young and exuberant. Rich, vigorous and powerful. A delicious wine to drink straight away. A wine also able to defy time. It can be enjoyed for a long time.
