Aromas of ripe red and black fruit. Intense fruit with a good point of acidity and freshness. Sweet and soft tannins. Elegantand very enjoyable wine, still fresh despite 2006 vintage. Medium to full bodied, very close to Italian Sangiovese (Brunello, Chianti)/CabernetSauv "blend." After resting in barrels for 24 months and 24 months in bottle, it remains intense with the prevalent ripe fruits of a fine Tempranillo.
