This is produced from 40-year-old vines that are planted in a walled vineyard. It is a beautifully concentrated combination of pure ripe yellow fruits and intense acidity. Together they create an opulent wine that still has structure and a crisp aftertaste. Keep this wine for a few more months and drink from the end of 2017.
