In the glass, the Negre of Bodegas Ribas presents a dense ruby color. After the first swirl, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which shows in church windows at the edge of the glass. The first nose of Negre flatters with notes of raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. The fruity aspects of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel aging such as even more fruity-balsamic nuances.
On the palate, the Negre from Bodegas Ribas opens wonderfully aromatic, fruit-driven and balanced. On the tongue, this punchy red wine is characterized by an immensely velvety texture. The final of this good aging red wine from the wine-growing region of the Balearic Islands, more precisely from Mallorca VT, finally thrilled with good reverberation.
