Tasting Note:

Very much in its infancy, tight-knit layered and focused, gripping fresh red berry notes with a warm spicy finish, touches of cinnamon and fruit liqueur. Rich but not as exaggerated as many 2009s, there is a surprising energy and vitality to it, a very classy example indeed. 3000 bottles were made. A very steep south facing vineyard from Verduno, a commune where there is less calcium in the soils, producing softer wines. The area is also influenced by the closer proximity to the river where there are big day/night temperature differences that help build up aroma in the wines. Monvigliero is steeper and has poorer soils than the Massara, producing intense and concentrated wines. Aged for three years in large slavonian cask, followed by two - three years in bottle
