Tasting

” Brilliant ruby. Intense dark berry, floral, black pepper and exotic spice aromas pick up smoky mineral, cola and incense nuances as the wine opens up. Candied violet and star anise suggestions complement vibrant black raspberry, cherry-cola, blueberry and vanilla flavors. Finishes impressively long and juicy, with steadily building tannins framing lingering blue fruit, spice and floral notes. This is quite an impressive success…”. 22nd December 2022 – Vinous Media – Josh Raynolds

Detailed information

Vintage

The 2020 vintage is characterized by its earliness, from the start of the vegetative cycle until the harvest. Spring turned out to be warm with temperatures constantly above normal and fairly regular rains, thus favoring rapid flowering in the second half of May and providing very good conditions for the rest of the cycle. The harvest began at the end of August and spread out over several weeks thanks to the good weather conditions. Throughout the northern vineyards, quality and quantity were there.
