It has a middle layer and it maintains it well, although the logical evolution in a wine of its age is appreciated. The background is red and the edging is brick-colored.
In the attack a slight metallic tone is appreciated. The wine is very intense and highlights the freshness. A vintage of less maturation is appreciated. The fruit is clearly red with a lot of liveliness. There are notes of spices and tobacco that complement the fruit. The wine maintains points that make it very personal.
It is very pleasant, fresh and fruity, with a lot of life and intensity. The red fruit appears very clearly in a fresh version. It is very rich in the mouth, the tips that were felt in the nose also appear in the mouth, giving the wine a feeling of freshness. The tannin is impeccable.
