Color: Garnet red color with orange reflections.
Scent: the wine’s aroma is quite elegant, refined and delicate. Hints of red fruit, especially cherries, and balsamic scents due to the balanced use of French oak. Notes of rose.
Taste: Very delicate. The tannins are present but well balanced with the alcohol content. The body of the wine and its structure are present but elegance is its predominant feature in the mouth.
