Tasting Note

A brilliant, sombre wine that holds the promise of great generosity. The bouquet is redolent of black-berried fruit and spices and incredibly fresh, with just a touch of earthiness. The rounded palate with silky tannins reveals expressive extract and great character. Lingering finish, offering fine aromatic intensity. A beautiful wine made by careful vinification, in an exceptional vintage.
