Previously available for $25.00
One additional year in wood, often used to season botte, about half sees barrique, in this year because of new botte no new barrique but typically fifteen to twenty percent, full south exposure of the vineyard, high temps,little thermic excursion, a tight little valley with a very steep vineyard, high percentages of sand, very narrow rows, no tractors can be used so all manual work. This has a really big nose that is barely fruit driven showing instead layers of forest floor, leather, dried meat, bramble and dark macerated floral aromas over a base of small blackberry fruits. Opulent on entry and chewy in the mouth with an attractive lightweight density to the wine, it’s not heavy but it is a bit thick with the acidity kicking in early and showing decisively but not too elevated. there’s great power and length, this is fabulous in a rich, powerful fresh and clear style. A really attractive blend of power and grace. 93pts
