Tasting note

LOOK: Surprising intensity, a cherry red colour with a still bluish rim.

AROMA & PALATE: It is explosive on the nose, rich and lively with drive. Cooked red fruit dominates with a slight hint of blackberry. The oak appears after aeration, showing sweet notes and a seductivefinish with notes of patisserie intertwined with the fruit. On the palate it is broad, round and very characteristic of the variety, with notes of ripe red fruit. Full of flavour. Multiple nuances appear on its journey through the palate, with balanced, powerful tannins thatfill the mouth, bringing pleasure, and giving it a long, silky aftertaste. Exquisite acidity in combination with the tannins and juiciness that appears once again on thenish.

Food pairing

An essential element in the Mediterranean diet, it goes surprisingly well with tapas as well as expressing itself perfectly alongside more substantial meals, such as pulse-based stews, lean meats, charcuterie and homemade stews.
