Tasting Note:

The Albesani offers up beautiful, heady aromatics and velvety ripe strawberries, reinforced by firming tannins. There is a lovely crimson brightness and spiced plum character too. Already quite approachable, the Albesani bottling is routinely one of the most suave and seductive. A south west facing vineyard of 280 metres planted on sandy white limestone soils, originally planted by Pierguido's grandfather in 1948. Ageing is in 25 hl casks for 26 months.
