Tastings Notes

Sublime wine : the age and the diversity of the vineyards add to its stunning complexity. Very mature fruits, plum, resin, cinnamon, truffle, spices... Aromas in the wine is infinite, accompanied with the oaky note. It is robust, rich in noble tannins, and has a wonderful aging potential, more than 20 years.
