Intense color, deep, with garnet reflections. On the nose the wine is complex, with hints of sweet licorice, coffee, plum jam, tobacco and a light note of violet. The structure is large yet in good balance, with very soft tannins, vibrant acidity, and long, persistent finish. Ideal for long-term cellaring.
Intense red color with garnet shades. The aromas are very complex; initial delicate expressions of truffle flavor then yield to hints of licorice, coffee, plum jam and blackberry. On the palate the structure is impactful; large, rich and elegant, with soft tannins accompanied with a lively acidity. The finish is extremely long. This wine has a great potential for aging.

Very intense and deep color, still with youthful hints. The bouquet is very complex and immediately attractive, starting with a good measure of red fruit well integrated with confectionary senses and toasty aromas; with a light note of freshness to autumnal flavors of coffee and chocolate. Full bodied but its muscularity gives a sense of harmony and softness. Dense texture gives it a long and silky finish and afterfinish.. An admirable synthesis of power and elegance.
Great overall balance and harmony. Color is still young and very intense, the concentration stunning, with an aging potential that seems unlimited, yet the wine is now very soft and elegant.

Intriguing bouquet: small berries, tar, truffles, chocolate. An impressive structure with a lot of mature tannins. Uncommon elegance for such a big wine.
