Produced from a field blend of old vines, this is a powerful and dense wine. The fermentation, with traditional foot treading in stone fermenters, gives the wine its extra richness and density. The wood aging shows in the smoothness of the tannins that are enhanced by the rich black fruits. Drink from 2018.
