Wine Lavia + Finca Paso Malo, red wine from D.O Bullas 100% Monastrell, of the winery LAVIA belonging to the group MG Wines.
Intense high-cherry color. It needs time to reveal all its aromatic nuances. At the beginning of the tasting shows us its mineral character, with the aeration evolves towards memories of monte bajo (rosemary) and ends with touches of tobacco and box of cigars. In the mouth it is fresh and powerful, with good structure, broad but without presenting any aggressiveness. With long and persistent finish, followed by sensations of minerality and terroir. The oak is unnoticeable in the nose and there is a sense of harmony and depth.
