DURO ISTRIANO

Glossy ruby red, dense and transparent. Intense aromas of red and black berries (blueberries, raspberries, ripe cherries). Refined herbal notes of ferns and green peppers, and spicy notes of red pepper, vanilla and cloves. After opening in the glass, decent notes of smoke and aged red meat develop. It is able to age in a bottle for another 7 - 9 years.
