A red with great richness in...
A red with great richness in polyphenols. Deep and intense purple-red, with a complex bouquet of red fruit, marasca cherries, black currents and raspberry with a delicate touch of sweet tobacco and cocoa and officinal herbs. The structure is dense yet balanced with rich tannins and great texture, while the fruitiness is supported by fresh acidity and a long-lasting note of jam
