"The hallmarks of power, concentration, complexity and great length feature in this wine. A magnificent wine reflecting the unique terroir (soil and climate) of our site.
Alluring aromas of spicy black cherries, ripe raspberries and plum fruits combine with a subtle perfume of game, truffle and cedar.
The vibrant palate is smooth and even with plenty of ripe berry and plum flavours intermingled with sweet oak nuances, fine savoury tannins and the all important velvety mouthfeel. Extra mellow textures and gamey, intriguing forest floor characteristics will develop with careful cellaring aiming for a constant, cool temperature over 10 to 20 years." - Claudio Radenti, Winemaker
Hand-picked, 95% whole berry/5% whole bunch, 28 and 48 days on skins (for 80% and 20% of the wine respectively), matured for 16 months in French oak (36% new). Radically different to Louis. Medium-bodied with spicy/savoury notes from start to finish. Both this and Louis need time for the tannins to soften.
