Tasting Note:

Silky dark fruit cloaks the palate with ferrous notes of blood and iron, some orange and stones. A fleshy richness covers the tannins. A full bodied style with lots of complexity. Finishes long and sweet. Enrico bought the plot in 2008 and re-worked the soil, planting the vineyard in 2010 with a massale selection from across the estate.
