On the nose: High intensity, with a big complexity and elegance in the aromatic nucleus, the mineral and red & black fruits showing up, incense reminiscences. All this goes together with the fine wood notes from the French oak tree, as vanilla, cedar, mild tobacco and spices.
On the palate, initially, excellent smoothness, volume and density develop and the fine grained tannic structure presents, furthering the savoury and complete palate. The freshness from the Graciano makes it more balanced concerning the alcohol, the finish is a plethora of sweet fruit, spice, oak and floral notes, a lenghty and resounding aftertaste.
"This powerful red is austere in character but shows depth and focus. Sanguine and tarry notes frame a core of currant, licorice and minerals flavours. Drink now through 2030. 94 Points." (Wine Spectator Magazine, May 2017)
