Tasting Note:

Meatier, more herbal and mineral than its 2013 successor. Notes of iron, blood orange, earth and balsamic add complexity to the bright crunchy red fruit. Tightly-wound but lifting and complex this will need a couple of years in bottle to reveal its full potential. From two hectares of vineyard in the Volcanic hillsides of Boca, 450 metres above sea level. A blend of 85 % Nebbiolo and 15% Vespolina, aged in large used Slavonian oak casks for two and a half years before bottling.
