Impeccable balance. Elegant and complex. Will easily last a decade or more.

This thing is going to be so beautiful! Tart blackberries and ripe currants come together with lavender and rosemary to create a fresh, racy wine. The structure is seamless, and the palate is extremely focused. Not surprised.

Bolgheri isn't really my jam, but have to say it's a well made wine. Savory, balanced dark fruits, star anise, stone. Classic as it should be.

Leaner on the nose, but fuller on the palate. Nicely ripe-nicely balanced, not very green, more my style
