Cuento • Bonarda

Tasting Notes

Wine of great presence, intensely red with bluish lilac tones, aromas of red fruit marmalade with mild spiced notes, of very good body and long persistence on the palate. As this wine is a natural product, delicately treated during its stabilization, bottles may occasionally contain small precipitates.
