Gorgeous nose of ripe berries and slice plums with an almost peach undertone. Full bodied with a solid core of gorgeously clean and clear dark fruits. Dense and integrated tannins on the finish. So long and fascinating. Best after 2013.

From vines with an average age of 29 years grown in rich galestro soil with clay limestone and calcium. Aged in a combination of French barrels and Slavonian casks. Dark ruby core with pink towards the rim. The nose... From vines with an average age of 29 years grown in rich galestro soil with clay limestone and calcium. Aged in a combination of French barrels and Slavonian casks. Dark ruby core with pink towards the rim. The nose displays subtle notes of cranberry sour cherry strawberry leather and sweet earth while the palate is long and full bodied with creamy tannins and high-toned acidity. This wine needs another 3-5 years in bottle and will continue to evolve for the next 20. Tasted in New York and at Vinitaly with consistent notes and scores.
