Bright violet color. Displays energetic scents and flavors of raspberry, bitter cherry, candied flowers and peppery spices. Round and seamless, with a hint of allspice emerging with aeration. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and appealing sweetness.
