Comprei a garrafa numa visita à adega.

Intense dark garnet color, vivid and bright. The nose shows a great aromatic complexity, cherry liqueur notes with subtle nuances of dark chocolatetogether with a background of redfruit and berries like blackberries. The palate is warm and delicate, silkytannins overflow its refinement and roundness.
