We only have to look at it to know that here we have a full-bodied kékfrankos in our glass: by its aroma we are utterly convinced by its fusion of spiciness and ripe Morello cherries. While tasting it, the effect of the barrel increases; the wood provides extra spices, cloves and vanilla, while at the end coconut emerges in the wine. The structure is pretty good, the acids liven up the flavour made somewhat lazy by the barrel, while ripe fruits enhance the spiciness. Towards the end the taste recedes, your mouth is filled with it, you feel the alcohol but it fits in here; it has content, not only form.
