Packed with ripe blackberry fruits, this is a dense, concentrated wine. It has a powerful structure that is filled out with delicious jammy fruits. The wine is perfumed and fresh with acidity while keeping its solid, dark character that is at its heart. Drink now, although the wine will be even better from 2018.
