Very deep cherry colour. Powerful aroma, notes of blackberries in jam with elegant toasted tones. In the mouth it is meaty and velvety, with a long and persistent finish

Winter was cold and harsh for the vines, rising temperatures of minus 12ºC. This extreme cold temperatures kept also in February and March followed by abundant rains at the end of the winter and during the spring. At the end of June finally rains stopped giving way to warm temperatures, great conditions for a good fruiting and fruit set. The harvest was longer than usual and also an abundant harvest.
