Deep black color. On the nose powerful black fruit flavors blend with mocha, coffee, wooded vanilla and toasted notes. On the palate, the wine is powerful, intense, complex, concentrated, with a perfect balance between fruit, wood, and spices. The finish is never ending and shows a very surprising freshness.
