Vega Montán Joven

Vega Montán Joven

Sapphire black color for its intensity and depth, with a fine edging beet. Complex and full of typical of the area and variety. Powerful mineralization, smoke, and peat, although paradoxically fresh and full of black fruit, with a remarkable floral background. Powerful, “chewy”, and full of records in the mouth, with a three-dimensional volume that fills with aromas and textures wherever it goes.
