This red shows a severe side, not only in the balsamic, leather and tar flavors, but also for the intense, bracing structure and chalky feel on the palate. Reveals a sweet core that persists on the lingering finish. Best from 2016 through 2030. 230 cases imported. –BS

(from a higher-altitude, southwest-facing, more sandy parcel of old vines that's picked a bit earlier than the Conca; this went through its malolactic fermentation in new oak, then was moved into larger, more neutral barrels): Good deep red. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, black cherry and licorice. Densely packed, juicy and tight, showing excellent energy to its dark fruit and spice flavors. Like a deeper, smoother version of the Marcenasco--and quite different from the more balsamic, muscular Conca--but still in a rather feminine style. Finishes with dense but silky tannins and lovely lingering sweetness.
