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.
Next vintage will be 2016.
