An elegant nose of plum and black fruits with creamy undertones and mocha notes. The palate is charming with a rich entry of blackberry and black cherry fruits giving way to chocolate notes and polished tannins.

“The nose is fragrant and savoury, and in 2016 the fruit particularly red/black and very pure. The texture is creamy and supple aided by dense sweet sift tannins that build the structure without drying out the wine."

 – Anthony Gismondi

"It begins with aromas of cassis and blackberry. On the palate, there are flavours of black cherry mingled with herbal and spice notes. The tannins are polished, with a firmness that will support cellaring."
