Tasting notes

IIntense ruby red color. On the nose evident hints of flowers, violets and irises, notes of ripe peach, followed by nuances of vanilla and sweet wood. In the mouth is elegant and enveloping, with sweet and silky tannins. Wine of excellent structure and persistence, with a pleasant and typical finish of the Brolio Grand Vin.
