Review

Aromatic and expressive, the 2018 vintage is a wine of great beauty and promise. Notes of black cherry, bergamot, red raspberry, and plum encapsulate a sturdy core of powdery tannins and vibrant acidity. Hints of rose and citrus blossom permeate its youthful and primary aromas. This is a wine crafted with freshness, elegance, and power that will generously reward for years to come.
