Tasting Notes

The 2005 Vintage has a strong personality, with the presence of aromas of ripe red fruits, jams and blackberry nuances. In the mouth it is potent, with soft tannins and jam taste, also opening a delicate new nut flavour. It has a prolonged persistence, with a very pleasant after tasting. This Vintage previews a good bottle evolution.
