Aroma is extremely fruity, especially with cherry, blueberry and soft fruit flavour. Spiced notes, very pleasant and subtle, are perceived. Vegetable notes, typical of Cabernet variety are missing due to a precise company policy of expressing more the fruity aspect.
Attack is smooth and velvety with flavours recalling the ones of olfaction. Wine endowed of great elegance and ageing potential after bottling.
