Your rating for Alta Alella Tinto Orbus 2015:Rate Alta Alella Tinto Orbus 2015:

4 /5

Violet, ripe fruit, balsamic, spice (clove) and tobacco aromas, very well integrated with the notes of vanilla and toast, resulting of the ageing process. Tasty, bulky and well structured, recalling the aromas of ripe fruit, balsamics and spices. Noble and well integrated tannins. Long and complex finish.
