The color is still fresh, dep and well concentrated. Aromas are slightly oaked and smoky with a hint of vanilla, specific of its noble aging. Then comes the fruit basket with aromas of blackberry, strawberry and cherry. The wine is very complex and a lot of other aromas do appear over the tasting. The attack is dense but soft on the palate with tannins of great quality. The wine of a great purity is very precise. It is unequivocally one of the great achievements of the vintage.
