In the glass this wine shows a bright garnet red with a violet hue. The nose opens with juicy blackcurrant aromatics balanced with subtle notes of black olive, cigar box and turned earth. The palate displays generous flavours of redcurrants, mulberry and Damson plum with streaks of liquorice. Soft, silky tannins round out a harmonious and moreish wine which can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 5 years.
The hidden geological treasure of porous limestone, under the rich terra rossa soil, creates the ideal cellar by storing water for later use. From these GIFTS of the earth, the winemaker creates their distinctive signatures in wine.
