The colorful spectacle of the evening sky
The glowing amber colors of the sunset are trapped in a glass of this wine. In matters of taste, there can be no disputes – and neither in matters of smell. This wine might have a nose of dried fruits or resinous spicy notes.
It has a balanced bouquet with fine sandy tannins, elegant, smooth and heavenly expressive.
Take your time to drink this wine, it certainly deserves it.
