Garnet red, brown halo. When the wine is young, the aroma is intense, with notes of black fruit and floral nuances reminiscent of violet. With the long stage in the best French oak barrels and the prolonged and deserved rest in the bottle, there are aromas of black cherry, plum jam, berries, wet earth, leather, with notes of black pepper, cedar, cigar box and cinnamon. The oxidative status of this category of wine gives it an enormous complexity, recognized by most demanding connoisseurs.
