Vibrant deep red color so typical of this variety, this wine displays great elegance and balance in the nose. Ripe fruit aromas evoke prunes, strawberries, and cherries intertwined with spicy notes, such as black pepper, tobacco, and sweet red pepper. The palate reveals an exceptionally powerful wine with the characteristic round and opulent tannins from grapes grown in Vistalba’s unique terroir. A pleasant and persistent finish displays more red fruit notes, but this time intertwined with vanilla and chocolate from oak aging.
