Tasting Note

It is an intense, elegant and complex wine. It develops and evolves as it oxygenates, displaying countless nuances. Balsamic and spicy notes combined with red and black fruit. Perfect balance on the palate, with a great complexity. This wine captures the elegance and strength of the Tempranillo grape and the perfect maturation and finesse of the 2010 vintage.
