Description: Dark crimson red with violet reflexes. Wild berries and ripe plums let themselves be seen in the nose, together with chocolaty and tasty nuances.

The wine has a good structure of the wood development with rounded tannins and a good middle departure with juicy raspberry notes in the finish.
