Enveloping aromas with notes of ripe red berries, cloves and plum jam. A captivating balsamic note can be felt during tasting. It has a powerful, well-bodied texture with firm tannins. A persistent finish with the same notes as the nose, and with elegant flavours of chocolate and leather that alternate between the notes of tobacco, spices and wood. Aftertaste is enriched by undertones of cacao and liquorice.
