Why I like this wine

This wine has great complexity, it has the aromas of fresh red fruits evolving towards very ripe wild red fruits. Together with the aroma of undergrowth and spices. In the mouth the wine is rich and round, full-bodied style wine with intense but elegant tannins. Long finish. The great potential of aging.
