Tasting
Icon mouth fe9befcc324311cf7cf9e740b28462659874ebbdc4882ef64971fe9b95382c5e Mouth: Vegetal and earthy flavours, with vibrant gooseberry and blueberry notes and slightly smoky flavour. Very delicate and fruity texture at the entering, then spicy tannins reveal itself. Long, dry e sophisticated finishing.
