Nose

Fresh and fragrant, this Crianza red wine from 4 kilos Vinícola suggests aromas of flowers, black fruit, and candied red berries. On the background, some hints of aromatic herbs and remembrances of citrus, alongisde a touch of sweet spices and wooden notes.

Palate

Fresh and savoury, this organic red wine from Mallorca is medium-bodied, accessible and well-balanced. Nice acidity and mild tannins. Clean notes of wet earth, red berries and underbrush with a medium, spicy finish.

Cutting-edge winery in Mallorca. They succeed in instilling terroir and elegance in all of their wines. This is the entry-level one, and it drinks wonderfully.
