(Automatically translated) The tannins of this wine are melted and the aromas are reminiscent of candied fruit.

(Automatically translated) What a treat! It is a succulent wine with notes of red berries with a slight woody and spicy taste. The blend of graciano, mazuelo and tempranillo brings a very appreciable suppleness to the wine. To be enjoyed alone or in pairing with red meat.
