Brilliant deep purple red in colour. The nose is opulent with notes of ripe black fruit and forest floor. In the mouth the impression is immediately one of harmony, with its silky and densely textured tannins. As in each vintage, we find notes of truffle, mocha, chocolate, black fruit like blueberry, blackcurrant and blackberry, with a glorious finish all in freshness and persistence. For those wishing to make great red wines, Caramany is truly a little corner of paradise.
