A wine of great balance between acidity and alcohol and a persistent and long finish.
Wine Maker Notes
Intense red colour. Powerful in the nose, showing a varied gamut of aromas, which give elegance to this wine. Red fruit aromas, such as plum, can also be detected, along with the floral notes characteristic of Malbec. Chocolate and vanilla from oak aging. Powerful in the mouth, yet very soft and silky, backed by the structure and depth of Petit Verdot.
