Intense garnet colour, with a more tawny-coloured rim due to the long ageing in barrel and bottle undergone by these great wines. The nose is intense and complex, with very ripe fruit mixed with notes of spices such as aromatic cloves. Upon aeration, it unveils aromas of caramel, vanilla and patisserie. An ample, round and velvety wine. It is full-bodied and persistent on the palate, very polished, with well-integrated oak, making it a very elegant wine.
