An Overview

A blend of Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. This wine has a deep purple colour, with intense fruit concentration. An elegant wine with mature tannins and excellent ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

The color is intense with violet tones. The nose is expressive, dominated by fruity aromas of violet and prunes. Malbec is very intensive wines and it is Cabernet-Franc who brings elegance and subtlety with very soft tannins and rose aromas. All these components provide the complexity and elegance wich are necessary for a great wine.
