Lighter ruby in the glass with a nose of complex floral, red fruits and minerals. A deep, dry wine with medium plus but well integrated tannins and a very long finish. It has a silky, smooth and elegant structure. Very suited to lamb and complex provincial dishes. This wine is only made occasionally in the best vintages (2007, 2010).
Next vintage will be 2016. Magnums are available for vintage 2010.
