Ruby red in color with light purple hues, complex aromas of wild berries, violets, spice and a soft note of oak provided by barrique aging. It is a full-bodied, rich and velvety wine.

Malolactic fermentation in barriques, then 18 Months in barriques and 12 Months in bottle refinement prior to release
So much fresh pressed violet and blackberry character as well as iodine, quartz, slate and tile. Full body, grippy yet linear and polished tannins, fine acidity and a long minerally finish. So refinded. Drink in 2020. - James Suckling 96 Points - #60 Top 100 Italian Wines of 2017
