Tasting Note:

Colourful, strong and voluptuous with plenty of bright fruit and dexterity to balance. Hearty, warming flavours of star anise, liquorice and cinnamon coupled with dark sweet fruit. The wine is dense yet lifting and gloriously velvety. A first class, clay-dominated, single vineyard from the Serralunga commune. The clay here is greyer than that of Margheria which yields darker more powerful wines. The vines average 60 years old and the wine is aged in 20% new wood for 24 months.
