The intense and concentrated aroma transports you to the landscape of this plot in spring, aromas of red fruits in an optimal and very floral maturity, in which violets are predominant. The wood notes are subtle and very well integrated.
The palate has a friendly entrance, medium body, good balance, and is fresh and lingering.
A very dry year with a total annual rainfall of 351 L, which, added to the shortage of rains during the previous cycle, brought a harvest of very low yields, good maturation and extraordinary concentration.
It was a year characterised by early sprouting, which brought forward the entire cycle of the vine. No rains were recorded during the month prior to the harvest or during the harvest period.
