Sight: A brilliant, purple-red Malbec.
Nose: Enticing aromas of flowers, ripe red and black fruits mixed with subtle notes of graphite and flint stone. The complexity of the nose develops further with time and air.
Mouth: The palate is creamy, almost greedy with satisfying volume and softness. Fresh, juicy red fruit in the mouth confirms the first impression on the nose. Round, firm tannins, a backbone of well-integrated acidity and bright fruit present, a complex and balanced wine. The complexity has developed greatly for its ageing in barrel.
