Tasting Note:

Very intense and tightly woven, a classic vin de garde. A real titan in the traditional mould, it gradually opens up to reveal dark berry fruits, touches of blueberry and background notes of sweet wild strawberry. The fruit is infused with a strong sweet spice and savoury dimension, liquorice, forest floor, leather and tobacco leaf. A wine of real gravitas that builds and builds the longer it is open. From 3 hectares of vineyard situated at 400 metres above sea level in the north eastern part of Montalcino, planted with cuttings from the Biondi Santi estate. The wine is aged for 30 months in large Slavonian oak casks.
