Gorgeous, intense aromatics offer a mix of red berry, floral, and sweet spice with savoury undertones, all of which echoes nicely on the flavour profile. It's full-bodied with chiselled, well-defined tannins that have some chalky grip, while acids are fresh and balanced. Powerful, yet elegant with plenty of finesse. Excellent finish length. Still a bit tight at this stage and will benefit with 2-3 years ageing and drink over the next 20+ years. Birth year treasure. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted Nov/2019.
