Wine Notes
Color
Black core, magenta rim.
Aroma
Lifted red fruits and refreshing menthol balanced by generous cloves and other spice notes.
Taste
As usual, the cool climate nose is contradicted with the warmer climate palate: more dark fruits, chocolate and spice, but still the subtle menthol adds freshness and length finishing with fine tannins.
