About

96

"This is a wild nose with fascinating aromas of rosemary, black pepper, oregano, iodine, incense, cinnamon, lavender, violets and sea urchin. This may be full-bodied and quite high in alcohol, but it’s so well composed, held together by bright strings of acidity and strips of polished, chewy tannins. Very long and complex on the lightly herbal finish. Drink from 2024."

Product Description:

"From Vernaccia Nera grapes, this wine, aged for 18 months in barriques, presents a good, intense ruby red colour, very consistent. To the nose it comes accross as rich in extracts, sweet spices along with black cherry, plum jam and a pleasant note of boisé. In the mouth it is consistent, with jam and sweet spices along with a dense weave of tannins that with the alcoholic backbone sustain the entire progression." - Winery
