100% merlot
Dense purple. Beautiful floral intensity, lots of freshness and fruit. On the palate, the wine is delicious, fruity, balanced and endowed with fine tannins, in symbiosis with the structure. A wine that has flesh and muscle. It still has to gain aromatic expression at the taste level but it is promising and has good potential. 2023-2033
