Tasting Note:

Combined elegance and finesse on the nose with power and longevity on the palate. Composed spicy red fruit and good wood integration. Round, noble, velvety tannins and a core of compact dark fruit. Creeping acid and a millefeuille of minerals that are gradually exposed with time in the glass. From a fine limestone, marl and chalk-influenced vineyard at 310 metres altitude in the Verduno commune with a south / south east exposure with a special micro climate close to the river where there are big day /night temperature differences. This yields a wine that is equally floral, mineral, smooth and powerful. Aged for one year in large oak ‘botti’ and one year in barriques with a maximum of 10 percent new wood.
