In the glass it displays a good, young, intense colour that retains bluish touches indicative of a good ageing. The nose is straightforward, bright and fruity, highlighting fresh red and black fruit mixed with notes of coconut, cocoa, spicy liquorice and thyme. On the palate it is both powerful and velvety. The opening palate is bright and soft thanks to its good acidity balanced with the vintage's high alcohol content. In mid palate it delivers elegant ripe tannins. Finally, its acidity helps the finish, giving it a long aftertaste. It is a wine ready to be enjoyed now, although its structure and acidity ensure it will age well.
