With a deep purple colour, it displays and elegant, complex nose of jammy wild berries, highlighted by the wonderful sweetness that the hints of blackberry jam and insinuating balsamic notes confer to it. Exquisite mouth, it seems robust and intense, with wise tannins defining a flawless structure. Everything is superlative and nicely tuned, in an exciting wine of superior character.
Recommendations: The wine should be stored in a fresh, dry and dark place, without temperature variations, and the bottle must remain in a horizontal position.
The wine critic confirms the enormous ageing in bottle potential, suggesting to drink this wine between 2025 and 2050. Once opened, it should be decanted and consumed within 2 to 3 days.
The explosion of fruit and the singularity of the style justify the extraordinary marriage with rich chocolate desserts, like chocolate fondants with redcurrant sauce or black chocolate mousse. Blue or hard cheeses are also an excellent combination. The exceptional quality of this wine makes it unique and worthy of being enjoyed alone or with a pleasant cigar.
Serve at a temperature between 12 and 14 ºC.
