Just tried ‘17, A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Aromas of fresh ripe fruits with notes of earthy floral. On the palate cherry and strawberry flavors with citrus and pepper spice. Developing fIne tannins with a slight grip, medium finish ending with fruit and spice. Enjoy, drinking well but a bit of bottle age will benefit.

Grocery store bought in Como Mercato. We finally settled into a great Airbnb in Laglio--- a few doors down from George and Amal. We were invited to the Villa, but the heck with that... I haven't had good thoughts about Hollywood since at least 2016. Anyway, decent cab/sang blend, welcome departure from Langhe, but nothing spectacular. I do love other offerings from this winery though.
