Tasting Note:

Massimo's 2014 Farella vineyard is tightly wound at release, the nose a close weave of gravel, cocoa nibs and bright small blackcurrants, with arresting detail and nuance, a sweet supple tannic structure, sheer salty minerality and highly accurate, tightly wound flavours of dark berries, salt, cacao, graphite and blackcurrants. Focussed, long and intense but also classically proportioned - this is old school Napa made with modern levels of precision. 150 cases produced annually.
