Hailing from the heart of the historic Cannubi vineyard, this polished wine opens with notes of black fruit, violet, leather and baking spices. The palate offers black raspberry, crushed cherry, clove and vanilla alongside brisk acidity and firm tannins. It's already accessible but will improve over the next four to five years and then evolve gracefully for decades. Drink 2018–2038.
