The wine comes from vines some planted in 1954, others in the 1980s. That gives the extra concentration that is so apparent. It is a dark firm wine, structured and dense both with black fruits and with tannins. The aftertaste brings in perfumed acidity as well as emphasizing the concentration. Drink from 2019.
