From 20-year-old vines grown on old stone terraces, this wine is structured and concentrated, yet balanced, with fine red fruits that are layered by tannins and acidity. The wine has a dense texture that gives it depth and ageability. With its structure and rich still-developing fruits, it will be best after 2018.
