Save $100.00 (14%)
Deep purple. Charming aromas of sandalwood, laurel, wild herbs, rosewater, lavender and chamomile show themselves upon first approaching this wine. Once deeper into the glass, you'll begin to notice a complex myriad of things - first cedar, then sweet fruits such as white melon and pear, followed closely by coriander, sage and earthy aromatic herbs. All of these aromatics wash over your palate upon entry, the tannins are well-structured and the acidity is laser perfect. Not as powerfully tannic as Costa Russi, it mainly benefits from a wider spectrum of aroma's and flavors, plus wonderful freshness and opulence all the way through a very long finish.
Almost seamless now, this red is hitting its stride, exuding cherry, strawberry, floral, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Offers great structure and length, with a firm, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2040.
