An intense cardinal red colour with garnet rims, plus dense and abundant tears. Aromas of flowers and nuts fill the senses with smoky, coffee tones and hints of liquorice. Elegant and meaty in the mouth with a lingering aftertaste.
22 months in 225-litre, extra-fine grain, medium toast French oak barrels.
Serve at 16.0°C, decanting is recommended.
