Description

From grapes in three La Morra vineyards a stone’s throw from each other: Roggeri (east-facing with clay-rich soil), San Biagio (south-west-facing with sandy soil) and Berlotti, in Santa Maria, each fermented separately, blended, then aged for two years in large botte. Such was the quality of the fruit that post-fermentation maceration on the skins was extended, giving a big rich wine with great potential. The tannins are little strict in youth, but there is a mass of ripe dark perfumed fruit balanced by just enough ripe acidity to keep it precise. The finish is long and satisfying.
