TASTING NOTES: This wine can be enjoyed at a young age expressing the youthfulness of each vintage or it can be rediscovered after having spent a few years in the bottle. The style of this wine is characterized by aromas and flavours of fresh and delicate red fruits. Their sweet and subtle tannins generate velvety textures in the mouth.
