Tasting notes: Medium purple in color, this wine shows seductive aromas of black forest fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and wild cassis. On the palate appears pure black fruits flavours. The acidity is fresh and well balanced, the tannins are well integrated. The finish is long, opulent and complex with notes of subtle spice earth, bitter dark chocolate and black truffle.
