Intense garnet color, it is a very deep coloured wine. Notes of black fruit, blackberry and fruit compote. An elegant wine, with a well defined structure. A great wine from Ribera del Duero, it achieves an amazing balance with its velvety touch and its powe.
Ideal service temperatura: between 18ºC and 19ºC.
