Winemaker´s Notes:
Once we have achieved the desired ripeness in the vineyards the prolonged maceration of more than two weeks, allows us to have maximum concentration of tastes and aromas.

Nose: Intense aroma of fruits of the forest, chocolate and spices
Palate: The brief ageing in oak gives a balanced structure and long finish on the palate accentuating the ripe fruit and tannins.
