Tasting Notes

This has a tighter nose at this stage than the Santo Stefano with hints of lavender oil. In the mouth really rich, broad and textural ¿ very layered and intense. Core flavours of olives, prune and truffles ¿ really quite exotic ¿ evolves into a meaty and very mineral middle palate and finish. This is very long, satisfying and savoury ¿ outstanding potential. Drink from 2010 ¿ 2030+

TASTING NOTES

A primary, simple red and black fruit nose which seems the most immediately inviting and appealing of the line-up.Underneath lurks white chocolate and mocha notes and the darker damsons, cherries and plums. A tangy, refreshinglift on the palate and a generous, open fleshiness suggest a wine that will give pleasure in its youth. Drink from 2010.
