This is a rich, concentrated wine, powered by both tannins and very ripe fruit. It is produced from vines planted in 1900 (MCM in Roman numerals), giving the dark color, density and power of old vines, layered with stylish black fruits and acidity. It's a fine expression of the complexity of pure Tannat with its layers of tannins and fruit. Drink from 2020.
