A classic red with intensity and solid structure. It shows plenty of fruit, scents of roses and violets, hints of smoke. Creamy and dense, fine grained tannins, beautiful balance, with soft texture, refined and cool, very persistent and long lasting. Take your time and it will open more and more in the glass!
