The wine has a medium intensity garnet hue. Notes of earth, vanilla and slightly toasted oak complement strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. The wine has a soft entry and medium body with balanced acidity and tannins. Along with strawberry, earth, toasted oak and vanilla flavors already present on the nose, the wine has a cherry nuance and finish.
