The gorgeous aromatics showcase a beautiful expression of terroir – laden with notes of crushed rock, mineral, earth, truffle, incense, smoked meat, sage and lavender.
The palate presents a decadent texture with cashmere-like tannins. Earth, crushed rock, red cherry, blackberry, black pepper, smoked meat and hints of mint gently unfold across the palate, culminating in a seductively long finish. The wine is concentrated and dense, without any sense of heaviness; it is the epitome of grace and elegance.
