The wine greets the eye with a dark ruby, then unfurls a forceful, complex bouquet of remarkable depth, characterised by rich notes of wild blackberry and blackcurrant. Delicate hints of spicy clove and black pepper enliven the background, and subtle impressions of black liquorice and balsam gradually make their presence felt as well, creating an aromatic amalgam of enviable richness. The palate opens generous and full-volumed, with ripe tannins that enfold the mouth in their velvety softness, while the near-endless aromatic progression is enhanced by a hint of smokiness through its entire length.

Wine SpectatorRich and fleshy, this red exudes black currant, blackberry and sweet baking spice flavors, with a layer of dense, refined tannins underneath. Fresh and elegant overall, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2024. 4,000 cases made.
