Tasting Notes This vintage is richly endowed with black fruits and ripe tannins. It has weight, layers of wood aging, acidity that plays with the smoky berry flavors and rounded aftertaste. The estate dates back to the 14th century, although vines were not planted until the 19th. Drink the wine from 2021.
