Tasting Note:

Alluring velvety dark fruits. This has a lovely purity, and suave, elastic tannins that shape around the ripe yet sapid fruit. Charming, teasing the fruits are dark yet also quite alpine, with an iron like undertone. Nicely crafted and poised. Enrico bought the plot in 2008 and re-worked the soil, planting the vineyard in 2010 with a massale selection from across the estate. So, despite their young age, the vines here are producing less bunches and smaller grapes than under the previous ownership. It is an open and windy site, steep and south facing. The soils are red sand and marl giving structure and potential to the wine.
