Tasting notes of Numanthia
The Numanthia wine has a ripe cherry colour with ruby reflections.
On the nose the wine is elegant, pleasant, fresh and deep, with hints of red berries, undergrowth, sweet spices and graphite.
On the palate, the entry is expressive, ample, amiable, fresh and sweet. The tannin is serious and ripe, well covered and with a great sensation of volume. Black fruit such as blueberries and blackcurrants, vanilla, cinnamon, graphite, nutmeg and hints of rosemary. Good acidity lengthens and allows this wine to age gracefully over the years.
