91 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

This wine features a yellow light golden color. The nose is initially marked by toasted and buttery notes. It opens to well-ripened tropical fruits and fresh nuances of citrus. In the mouth it has a medium-full body, complex and creamy where its fine acidity gives a great liveliness to the wine. In the taste is worth highlighting the ripe fruit, a smoked and roasted note, a background marked by its spicy component, and a long and very persistent finish.
