Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and oak spice on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy and sweet, offering intense blackberry and cherry-cola flavors that put on weight and become spicier with air. Finishes smooth and expansive, with a smoky nuance and youthfully chewy tannins. This powerful yet lithe wine boasts excellent focus and dark fruit intensity

Powerful and young, this youthful, still oaky young Tempranillo-based red by Vega Sicilia needs at least an hour of decanting. Full-bodied, generous and filled with tobacco, blackberry and black tea leaf notes. Great for those who enjoy full-bodied styles but best in 2 to 3 years time.
