SENSORY PROPERTIES
Deep ruby red colour with nuances of garnet.
On the nose, the opening sweet accents of Maraschino cherries and jam are replaced by a spicy aroma and delicate final notes of leather and tobacco.
On the palate, it is generous, with a velvet-smooth body, yet elegant and strong with a balanced ending.
