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.
