Made from old vines in the heart of the historical Cannubi zone, this needs a little time in the glass before it opens to reveal rose, violet, clove, cinnamon, leather and berry aromas. It's very elegant, with concentrated flavors of red cherry accented with balsamic notes and cake spices alongside polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2020–2040.
