The Special Selection Reserva exhibits a medium-deep, dense garnet/black cherry colour.
The nose is complex with ripe, red berry and black fruit coming to the fore with hints of black pepper and subtle, creamy, smoky oak, followed by notes of coffee and a touch of mint.
The entry on the palate is smooth and elegant and develops with good volume towards an elegant, harmonious mid-palate revealing fresh, ripe red berry fruits and spice. The whole is underpinned by a powerful tannic structure and fresh acidity.
This powerful yet elegant Reserva offers great ageing potential.
This wine will go well with red meats, lamb and all types of game dishes.
