Visual: Medium deep cherry color with shades of purple and abundant leg.
Nose: Reminiscence of toasted new oak, coffee, toffee and red forest fruits (blackberries and wild strawberries). After swirling the wine’s complexity arise, showing a frank nose, vanilla, sun-dried fruit, mineral and spicy tones.
Mouth: Ample and gentle, in mouth reveals complex, recalling roast and mineral notes but also underwood and Chinese ink hints. Round, edgeless despite the tannic strength, well balanced acidity that foresees longevity. The aftertaste is long with a gentle hint of sweetness.
The wine was to undergo a long process of ageing in new oak cask for 36 months, a posterior maturation in Inox tanks for 48 months, a bottling process without any filtering or clarification whatsoever and a further period of 6 months in bottle before its commercialization (started in January 2015).
