TASTING NOTES:

Color: Deep ruby red with purple overtones
Aroma: Intense aromas of black cherry, prunes and vanilla with notes of mint and Modenese Balsamic.
Taste: Fruity and fragrant. Full-bodied with flavors of dark cherries, blackberries, and blueberries. A long and persistent finish with silky tannins and lingering vanilla notes.
