A wine attains its ideal maturity when all of its components are balanced and offers a great aromatic complexity, not only on the nose but also resting on the palate with a persistence.
This doesn´t mean that a matured wine is necessarily an aged wine. No, rather a matured wine at its perfect drinking peak. Actually, it maybe the case in some wines that they should be consumed when young and fresh.
