Tasting Notes

A unique wine from pre-phylloxera, 100 year old Nerello Mascalese, whose yields are minute and produce less than half a bottle of wine per vine. The result is an extraordinary achievement. Powerful, concentrated morello cherry combines with violet, raspberry coulis and impressive herbal and spicy scents. There are full, mouthcoating tannins and incredible, wild florals alongside a crunchy acidity. The pot-pourri, balsam, minerals and fine texture are reminiscent of good Nebbiolo but with a soft, approachable elegance. This is a wine lover’s wine which should age gracefully and provide much enjoyment in the mid-long term. “This wine is soaring in character and quality and is fast on its route to becoming one of the icons of vino Italiano” according to Monica Larner (The Wine Advocate).
