Tasting notes

Sight: Deep purplish red color. It's vivacious, with very good limpidity and shine.

Nose: Red fruits stand out, both plum and cherry. It presents a subtle aroma of vanilla and coffee. With very good balance between oak and wine.

Mouth: Sweet entry and good body, fruity, soft tannins and agreeable end. The characteristics of terroirs from three regions that inspire its name are distinguished: Agrelo, Vista Flores and Ugarteche. This election generates a young wine, easy to drink that entertains for its perfectly amalgamated differences.
