Sant'Helena Venko Rosso 2012

At sight it has a ruby red color, very dark and intense. The nose is dominated by floral hints of violet and red rose, alternating with fruity and spicy aromas; as the minutes pass, aromas tending towards balsamic. Tasting is rich, full-bodied, with a strong structure, balanced in flavor and acidity. Closes with a persistent finish.
