Tasting notes

The Basileus originates from Magliocco grapes vinified in purity, it is dark red in the glass.

The olfactory notes articulate on a fruity register with underbrush and leather notes, complex and deep aromas increasing with the contact of the wine with the air. The entrance in the mouth is wrapping and the wine fullness is the result of the balance between the tannic matrix and the vine fruity pleasantness. Long, sapid and very persistent finish.
