Capela Tinto 2019 75cl


Tasting Note

Beautiful garnet colour. On the nose, the wine shows a fresh red fruit aroma with balsamic & some spiced notes. On the palate the wine has smooth tannins, with a lighter aftertaste than expected, mingling with notes of wild fruit & warm spices that confirm the aromatic sensations.
