Aging: 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months and later 1 year in the bottle before release.
Tasting notes: Deep red and violet color. In the nose it is very intense, with layers of aromas that come up after some minutes in the glass: dark barries, licorice, red pepper, violets, chocolate, tobacco and mint. In the mouth it displays intense tannins, well ripped, combined with a good acidity and a long finish. Full body. Great to combine with strong flavors and fatty meals, like beef, lamb and duck magret.
