If you are a fan of red fruit compote, then this wine is perfect for you. It was light but tasted like blackberries.
This wine is a classic.

- View: intense red color with purple hues.
- Nose: A combination of scents of black fruits such as blackberries, blueberries and plums with spicy notes like juniper, cloves and red peppers. In the background feels a faint smell of snuff.
- Mouth: velvety and strong with polished tannins that give it a tasty flavor profile. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a mineral taste in the mouth, very refreshing.

Finally allowed to stand almost a year in the bottle.
