The nose expresses the typical personality of the grape, capable of expressing a complex and intense bouquet of fruity (blackberry, black cherry) and above all spicy (vanilla, pepper) aromas. In the mouth the traditional acidity is the side of a voluminous and rich material. It ends long and characterful, with a pleasant return of the fruit.
