Matured for about 18 months in new (225 LT) French barriques followed by 1 year in the bottle before release. Ruby red with brick red undertones. Notes of cherry and ripe fruits. Extremely elegant, not overpowering, plenty of tannins but smooth and rounded. Enjoyable now but will develop very well over the years.
