Deep crimson with a touch of violet. The aromatic profile is profound and intricate, featuring a medley of red, black, and blueberries intertwined with hints of mineral elements like graphite and damp river stones. Subtle notes of licorice, freshly cured tobacco, and a delicate trace of lavender add to the complexity. On the palate, it's full-bodied, echoing the aromatic nuances, wrapped in a sumptuously tannic yet well-rounded structure that exudes remarkable intensity. The hillside tannins and classical aromatic intricacies combine harmoniously, leading to an exceptionally long-lasting finish. Crafted for extended aging, this wine, fit for collectors, reveals its true essence after a few years of careful cellaring.
