Tasting Note:

This wine’s class is immediately obvious in its texture, which is suave and caressing but, like all great wines, the palate starts off by being a little brooding and mysterious. With air the flavours gently unfurl, notes of wild berries, undergrowth, mocha herb, sweet spice, gravel and smoke. Seamless, flowing yet deep and hauntingly long, a wine of beauty and personality. Merlot grown on clay with a Mediterranean lilt, a great and individual expression of this variety. A selection from a single hillside plot of 7ha in Bolgheri grown on grey clay soils that are unique to the area, its first vintage was 1986.
