A very deep and dense purple, the wine has a powerful and elegant nose on opulent aromas of black fruit macerated in spirits, together with notes of mint and camphor, tobacco and mocha.
The attack is immediately unctuous and smooth, the texture very dense, with robust, forward tannins. It lingers pleasantly on the palate, sustained by the macerated black cherry notes already present on the nose.
After a cold, dry start to the year, a change in the weather pattern brought higher-than-average temperatures and rainfall from February. A few very hot days in late July and early August interrupted the growth of the vine, helping to concentrate sugar and phenols in the berries. The fine weather continued in September; some light rain ensured that the grapes reached full maturity while remaining in excellent condition. The harvest took place in good conditions, with plenty of sun during the day. The grapes were healthy, well-coloured, tannic and full of flavour.
