Net yields of 38 hl/ha in 2011. Aged in a combination of 60% new and 40% once used barrels. Almost opaque ruby verging on garnet. Persistent perfume of flower blossoms with red and black fruit aromas and an underlying earthy soil note. Tangy and juicy with primary flavors of red cherry good structure and finishing with some grippy tannins that need a couple of years to mellow. Otherwise a really nice wine. Enjoy 2015-2025. Tasted twice. Only 1000 cases produced.
