Tasting Notes

Profile sheet Monte Real de Familia 2012

Displays a cherry-garnet-red colour of medium depth.

Complex, clean nose of good intensity.

Balanced, tasty, moreish and enveloping in the mouth, developing sweet, well-integrated tannins and a ripe, silky mouthfeel. Nice acidic palate with a long finish characterised by aromas from barrel ageing.
