The wine has an evolved colour with a slightly orange, brickish tint at the rim and a deep and complex nose that offers an array of stewed fruit, black fruit, tobacco, spice (clove) and peppery aromas.
The attack is fresh, on ripe fruit with an attractively mineral touch, while acidulated berry fruit on the palate complements a creamily smooth and precise tannic structure, leading into a pleasantly long and fruity finish.
A wine full of generosity and freshness, typical of the vintage.
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90
Blackberry and spice aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and roasted, almost exotic fruit character on the finish.
