This wine with great structure displays refined, elegant tannins, underpinned by a pleasant acidity. Enveloping notes of ripe fruits, spices, incense, vanilla and tobacco conferred by the Primitivo grapes, while the Cabernet Sauvignon completes the bouquet with elegance and finesse. Warm, silky, broad and persistent in the mouth. The balance between the various elements confers great ageing potential but also immediate drinkability.
A unique wine, it represents the top selection of the grapes arriving in the cellar. The batches which compose the final blend are aged separately for the first year then blended and aged for a further six months. An annual production of a few thousand bottles of great potential and structure.
