Following a rainy winter that helped maintain the water reserves accumulated during the previous season, the budding phase began at the beginning of April.
The plants developed steadily thanks to a sunny and dry season which helped maintain the plants in good health throughout the entire growing phase. The hot, long summer was mitigated by two intense August rainfalls, which provided the ideal conditions for a uniform, intense and stress- free ripening of the grapes.
The wine’s complex nose of ripe fruit features dominant cherry and plum aromas introduced by spicy highlights of vanilla and ginger bread that pave the way for softer notes of cinnamon and cloves.
To the palate, the wine is genuine and structured. The tannins are present but elegant and not aggressive, providing a broad and dense frame to the wine. The wine is pleasant with a sustained nish dominated by a wonderful crispness.
A deep, concentrated ruby red. The nose boasts an impressive complex of aromas, opening immediately with intense notes of fresh berryfruit, particularly blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by a hint of smooth vanilla hovering in the background. The palate offers an ultra-appealing crispness complementing its fl avours of ripe fruit, dried fl owers, and spices edged in smoke. Dense-packed, velvet-textured tannins contribute to an impressive structure that gives the wine its solid backbone. A near-endless fi nish provides a seductive vein of tangy mineral and spice, completing a wine that showcases a marriage of crispness and power.
