The Valeirano cru is located in Treiso and sees 50- to 60-year-old vines planted at 380 meters above sea level, where they benefit from cool nighttime temperatures in the crucial weeks leading up to harvest. The wine is packed tight with black cherry and blackberry with light shadings of cedar, licorice and spice at the back. These wines from 2017 all tend to show extra tannic intensity, although this expression appears the silkiest of them all. Some 7,000 bottles were made.- ML

It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy and firm tannins and a pretty finish. Give it two or three years to come together. Try in 2023.
