Tasting Notes


Beautiful dark cherry colour with hints of ruby-red. Depth of colouring and its dense pigmentation stand out. It is clean and bright, showing its age by means of a delicate brick-red hue

The long ageing process is clearly detected, as well as the blending of the three varieties which endow ALITUS with great aromatic complexity. There are secondary and tertiary aromas, since ageing has resulted in the fading of the primary grape aromas.

On the palate a velvety smoothness envelops first impressions. The acidity and tannins are still there although perfectly integrated on the taste buds, creating a body of flavours which, on passing though the warm mouth, open up to impart an array of sensations filled with richness and succulence that linger on.
