Vivid red. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, sandalwood and Asian spices, along with a bright floral overtone. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet raspberry, cola and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out slowly with air. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse, finishing with silky tannins, impressive clarity and floral-driven persistence.
