At the base of the glass is a warm red, with a light, orange-coloured tone. Nose: Lively and with a velvety texture. Fruit aromas – grapefruit, apricot, almond, hazelnut, cocoa; aromas of wood – vanilla, old Port casks; aroma of roasting – cinnamon, caramel, coffee; ethereal aromas – stearin and iodine. Palate: Effect on palate is fine and delicious. The elegance of the first contact remains through a complex sequence of dry, mature fruits, in a fresh, luscious (sweet fortified) harmony. After taste: Smooth and dry, complemented by a generous, rich persistence. Aging: 20 years in oak casks. Bottling: 2 months before being put on the market. Predicted longevity: Ready to drink.
