Made from the Pisapola vineyard in the village of Verduno, this elegantly structured wine opens with aromas of pressed violet, wild berry and sweet baking spice. The linear palate offers sour cherry, raspberry, crushed aniseed and white pepper alongside youthfully austere but polished tannins. Drink 2018–2026.
