Colour: Well covered ruby colour.
Nose: Medium intensity aroma with dominant vegetable notes. Abundant red fruit nuances are accompanied by balsamic and toasted aromas, with some smoked hints. A tantalising bottom.
Taste: A flavourful and tantalising but fresh and light wine. Displays some well integrated balsamic notes and lightly dried tannins. The fruit that was picked up on the nose later recedes into the background. A very persistent wine.
