Share this wine:

This wine has a multi-layered fruit spectrum, which ranges from ripe red fruit aromas to spicy elegance and a blackberry richness. These expres- sive aromas carry through onto a rich, creamy palate where it lingers for moments after. The 2016 shows the power of the vintage, without com- promising elegance and finesse. Silky, well-integrated and graphite tannins, ensures great longevity.
