Notes from the Winemaker:
The winemaker goal is to produce elegant and complex wines in the range. The first work is in the vineyards to obtain concentration and balance using vines older than 20 years. The harvest is manual, putting clusters in small 22kg boxes. In the winery the must is produced using just first press juice. 70% of the wines is aged in small barrels of both American and French oak for 12 months. 100% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation spontaneously.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points & #65 Top 100 Wines of 2018 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dried red fruit flavors are lively, offering a surplus of rich, dried savory herb notes. Accents of hot stone and white pepper flood the finish. Drink now through 2023. 110,000 cases made." - AM (Nov 2018)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Violets, blueberries, mahogany and cloves. Medium body, fine tannins, lovely fresh acidity and a round finish. Drink now." - (Apr 2018)

89 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Bright red-ruby. Blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, violet and spices on the nose. Nicely intense and delineated in the mouth, showing a suave, smooth texture and lovely inner-mouth lift to its slightly wild dark berry and violet flavors. Fine-grained, fruit-driven wine with lovely saline mineral energy and a smoothly tannic, deceptively long back end." - Stephen Tanzer (July 2018)
