Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: It looks with cherry-garnet colours that give evidence of the excellent ripe condition of the grapes. The bouquet is intense where the notes given by oak are combined with the typical fruit bouquet of this variety, cassis with prune and dry raisins scents. All together they produce complex, harmonic and very elegant scenery. In the palate, the wine develops in a gentle mood, where the ripe tannins give support to a deep body, showing an excellent vintage.
