2016, First Vintage and Great wine !
Beautiful color. The bouquet is fiery with notes of green pepper infusing the black fruit “punchy” and requires attention. The palate is medium-bodied with a sticky black fruit. There is a crispy acidity that guarantees a feeling of freshness and precision until the end. It is an excellent wine that will give a decade of pleasure to drink. » Aging protential: +/- : 10 years.
