Tasting notes of Alexander The Ham Factory
Visually, the wine has a dark cherry red colour with garnet hues.
In terms of aroma, the nose is pleasant but deeply complex. From the primary aromas typical of the variety, such as liquorice, to spicy notes of white pepper, together with fruity aromas of plum and subtle notes of fig compote. On the palate, there is remarkable density and length, with a predominance of black fruit and spice flavours, attributable to the subtle influence of the oak. The wine is both friendly and balanced, with great volume and freshness backed by good acidity. The tannins are perfectly integrated, which makes it a highly versatile wine for gastronomy, being an ideal choice for the most discerning palate.
