In this vintage, color has marked an inflection point due to the extremely high intensity achieved. Black and purple hues, enhanced by a lively shine, deliver a highly attractive wine. Intense aromas of red and black berries, complex; this year with a good share of spices, such as clove and, slightly, pepper. Its mouth-feel offers an ample start, with sweet tannins that are typical of this variety, good structure, and acidity that is remarkable and well-balanced, yet firm, adding agility and freshness with a long finish.
