It is a blend in which the Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Carignan. Aged for 12 months in new French Oak. The Laurona has a deep purplish red color typical to its actual youth. Its aroma is penetrating, complex and intense. Initially, it recalls blackcurrant, plums, blackberries and roasted dried fruits. Gradually, as the wine opens up, complexity increases and penetrating spicy notes appear (vanilla, cinnamon ...) and a pleasant floral background (violets). Its palate is opulent, velvety and very persistent. The abundance and balance of tannins provide a luxurious evolution over the next ten years.
