Tasting notes

Intense "picota" cherry with purple highlights. Intense and clear aroma with ripened red and black fruit (red and black plums, cherry, blackberry). Red and violet floral aromas, balsamic touch with some toasted and sweet spices signs. Great expression of the tempranillo's personality. In the mouth it is fresh, big, fleshy and with very good acidity. Good structure and power with lightly marked greedy tannins and very good persistence of the variety.

"Picota" cherry colour with violet reflections. In the nose brings us memories of ripened red and black fruits, light citrus sign, flower petals and balsamic fragrance are rounding the set. Firm perfume of fruit and marked sign of the carbonic maceration process. In the mouth it is greedy, enveloping, with great personality.
