We’re excited to have this 95-Pointer from an estate on the upswing. 200 years old and now under the direction of the Lorenzetti family, this estate’s metamorphosis has been spectacular, including a move towards organic farming and a 100% gravity-fed winery. This aromatic delight opens with crushed currants and graphite. A perfect balance of acidity, tannins and fruit carry the full-bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. We expect demand to just keep increasing for this revitalized estate.

So aromatic with crushed currants, raspberries and blackberries with hints of graphite and lead pencil. Full-bodied and very tight with beautiful tannins and a long, flavorful finish. The tannins really build at the end of the palate. Try from 2024.
