Two three days more of maceration, one year 15 Hl in botte Production is from .66 hectare, 1500 bottles, half point of alcohol higher than the normal bottling, plants yield small clusters, very small and very tight, small berries, give a wine of unusual extraction and richness, Chocolate and toasted herbs greet the nose followed by hint, a little of herb stem, a touch of dried basil stem, earth, ash, old wood and a bit of dried berry fruit. This is exciting in the mouth, rich and with great depth yet clear and bright as it dances across the palate. The purity of the black fruit is terrific and the nice firm tannins and lovely firm and integrated acids offer exceptional balance yielding an elegant wine that has an innate sweetness to the fruit and a lightly tactile quality to the dry extract. Fascinating wine. 92pts
