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.

Color was a dense deep red with aromas of ripe dark fruits and forward spice. The flavors were fresh and concentrated with blackberries and cherries, complex palate, showing a nice mouthfeel. The tannins were a approachable but needs decanting. The ending had spice, ceda, leather and minerality on the lingering finish. An elegant wine that needs time to develop, try in another 3-5 years, although should last for a decade. Tasting Sample.
