Tasting notes: Dark-hued with young, purple-blue hints. On the nose small wild berries in their best ripe version, you can certainly find hints of blackberry that are characteristic of the grape. Balsamic notes are typical of this specific site. In the palate acidness is the surprise, acidness is the logo of this winery and it brings an elegant side to this big wild boy of the Italian enology. Juicy berries and black pepper in the long finish. Even if you will open an aged one it will surprise with a graphite color, deep and impenetrable, typical of this indigenous grape.
