Rich yet extremely elegant with perfumed and bright fruit aromas, a tight core, fine grained tannins and incredible length. A slightly warmer site results in a more robust wine with marginally lower perception of acidity enticing you to drink sooner. But do not dismiss this wine’s ability to age, evolve and develop more layers and complexity for a decade and beyond.
Quite powerful on the nose, but with an abundance of freshness showing violets and a purity of ripe fruit, structure, firm tannins, bright acidity and a mouth-watering finish. Possesses all the components to age well, but if given enough air, it will be enjoyable even in its youth.
This wine has every quality of a great Nebbiolo that haunts the soul. Profound aromas of tar, rose and chocolate mingle with pure notes of red cherries. Dusty and firm tannins are in harmony with the generosity of fruit. Long lingering finish with a touch of iron that adds further complexity. Without a doubt a wine for the cellar. I ordered a few bottles on the spot!
Linear, vibrant and electric with bright fruit, spice and floral notes, a tight core and refined texture. A little time will allow the wine to integrate even more and become more expressive. Patience will be rewarded.
The quality of the bright red fruit is stellar with great purity and minerality. A lovely perfume, notes of citrus and spice, firm, but well-integrated tannins. Well balanced, multi-dimensional, classically austere, refined and elegant, but also inviting. Pleasurable in its youth but will age well for many years to come.
More structured than the Bric Volta, with broader shoulders and fuller tannins. However, still elegant and layered, showing slightly darker red and black fruit, spice, balsamic and forest floor. Balanced and complex with a long finish. From 50-year-old vines grown in a combination of sandy and clay soils. Ideal with braised meats and rich, earthy vegetarian dishes.
