By tilting the glass approximately 60 degrees and on a white background, we can see a mid-high layer formed by intertwined picota cherry red hues. Swirling the glass away from us in a circular direction from the centre, we find blue tones, with hints of rich and bright purples as we get closer to the meniscus.
Holding the glass still, we can get an idea of this wine’s potential, sensing the admirable complexity of fruit and aromatic cleanliness. By swirling the glass, we get aromas of fleshy fruits such as cranberries, raspberries, …and black fruits such as blackberries or redcurrants.
On the palate, it matches the nose with flavours of fruit compote with notes of almonds. It is an intense, full bodied and well-structured wine; the tannins are long and velvety which, together with the legs, give it an exceptional volume.
