Tasting notes:

Dark ruby red. Generous aromas characteristic of this variety, reminiscent of red plums and with notes of Mediterranean scrub, intersected with very pleasant shades of black pepper. A wine that impresses with the integrity of the fruit, fleshy, rich, consistent with the typical characteristics of the variety.
