PRE-ARRIVAL: THIS WINE WILL SHIP IN MAY 2022 


This vintage will be a rare prize in your cellar. In 2017, crops were culled dramatically and yields were down nearly 75%! In fact, Valdicava opted not to make their highly coveted single-vineyard wines at all – putting that spectacular fruit into this more accessible bottling. The Montosoli and Madonna vineyards bring gorgeous brightness and acidity to the wine, along with classic, intense aromas of balsamic, tea, dark cherries and coffee bean.

Intense aromas of flowers and dark cherries. Perfumed and bright for the vintage. Full-bodied and firm with chewy yet polished tannins and a succulent and fruity finish that is in line and framed. Give it two or three years to soften. Try after 2023.
