THE VINTAGE
Due to a significant period of rainfall, this year saw a significant presence of late blight but thanks to the high summer temperatures and optimal September weather, the quality of the bunches was excellent. The reds with aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, prune and ginger present silky and round tannins with a long and velvety finish. The 2018 vintage has a good aging capacity.

TASTING NOTES

Ruby red color with bluish reflections. Intense and frank nose, dominated by ripe and fresh red fruits. Sweet spices, coriander. Tasty and tasty attack. Mouth firmly in place, with fat and tension. The tannins are supple and well integrated. Notes of ripe candied fruit, sweet pepper and licorice.
