The wine comes from vineyards that are sourced from the south of the appellation and located on hillsides that enjoy a east and southeast exposure.
On the nose, this wine reveals aromas of pepper and jammy red fruits. In the mouth, it is balanced, ample and intense, offering beautiful tannins on the long lasting finish. A wine of character that can be cellard up to 8 years.
