The robe is an old golden yellow with copper reflections. The disk is bright and the legs are medium long.
The nose is very aromatic with hints of exotic fruits such as lychee, passion fruit and mango, along with more floral hints such as old rose.
In the mouth, the onset is supple, in silky finesse with a slight bitter touch. In the middle mouth, we find a pretty mellowness quite in harmony with the wine. The finish is slightly round, harmonious and finely balanced with a tannic and tannic and salty side of extraordinary purity.
