            [Notes4] => 

Purchase 6 bottles and receive this in a wooden case. This excellent wine is seductive with an intense colour. Its nose expresses aromas of black and red ripe fruits, fine oak and spices. The mouth is round, medium to full bodied, tasty, structured by noble tannins and spices. A long and aromatic finale.
