Red ruby color, with a hint of a fresh and vibrant character and a touch of sweet spiciness. The wine has a good structure. It is complex, silky and balsamic. Sweet and elegant tannins, that have been polished during the ageing in American, French and Russian oak.

Deep red ruby color. Ripe black fruit aromas mingle with some fine spicy nuances from the five year ageing process. A balsamic subtle note adds freshness and a nice balance. Full body and good tannin structure but very polished, with a long after-taste. Elegant, powerful and with great ageing potential.
