A dense and seriously concentrated wine, this comes from a small parcel of vines that are densely planted with 6,666 vines per hectare (2,600 per acre). Black fruits dominate the powerful dusty tannins while licorice and dark chocolate flavors come from behind. It is a wine to age for many years. Drink from 2022.
