Tasting Note: The 2013 vintage is characterized by abundant rains, especially during spring, but generally balanced temperatures and precipitation throughout the year. Daily and very careful care of the vineyard allowed us to bring in the cellar beautiful and healthy grapes. The wine has a brilliant ruby colour, with persistent but delicate notes of small red berries, sour cherries, raspberries followed by elegant tobacco and Mediterranean herbs. Lush but savoury palate, shows great depth and balance with fine grained tannins and long, persisting finish. Drink now to 2035.
