It is characterized by a mixed fruity to smoky taste. It closes with the touch of bitterness, from century-old vineyard and the vineyard of fifty, masculine and tough. Ruby color transparent; opening emits smells of wild rose, cardamom and peony, then known iron, china, wet earth, humus and macerated red flowers. In the mouth the acidity dominates, with tannins evolving.
