Made from vines that are more than 40 years old and cultivated using only natural methods, this wine embodies power and finesse. It opens with aromas of leather, menthol, ripe black cherry, blackberry, black pepper and eucalyptus. The structured palate delivers layers of mature berry, baking spice, mineral, truffle and balsamic notes. It's young but impeccably balanced with velvety tannins. Drink 2018–2038.
