It is a very intense wine with great complexity on the nose; the richness of fruit nuances is enhanced by hints of minerals and dark-coloured spices, closing on a note of rhubarb and thyme. The palate is immediately exciting, with a nice tension that is vibrant and dynamic thanks to the fine layered tannic texture and an important minerality which accompanies it through the deep finish.
