Morello cherry red with a good depth. Elegant nose, intense primary aromas of soft fruits well offset by spicy notes of weathered wood characteristic of a rigorous aging in American oak which nonetheless do not overshadow the fruit character. Powerful mouth, fleshy, very luscious, rich and silky, with lovely tannin structure and acidity. Intense in retro-olfaction, with fruity aromas, balsamic, liquorice, coffee etc. The pleasant flavours of the aftertaste are particularly noted on the finish as sensations are still intense and invite immediate drinking.
Barrelled-fermentation period 24 months in American oak barrel of typically one-two years old and medium-heavy toasting.
