“These 45+ year old vines are grown on ancient Roman terraces on decomposed granite and is aged in 20% new French oak barrels.”
Fresh and very lively in feel, with nicely embedded acidity driving the delicious plum, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors along, Lots of bright bay leaf, savory and iron notes stream through the finish. Shows solid cut and drive. Best from 2019 through 2030. 400 cases made, 100 cases imported. – Wine Spectator 93pts
