Wine Description

Very clean, opulent aromas, with notes of ripe red fruits evolving into delicate spice and floral perfumes. Powerful and velvety in flavor with a fleshy and sustained finish and refined tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

The unique position and soil structure of the Sugarille vineyard – calcareous clay with a gently sloping southern exposure – give this wine an expressive, powerful character. It is normally more austere in youth than Rennina due to the slightly firmer tannic structure. But after 5-7 years, the depth and concentration of this wine lead to a complex flavor profile of great balance.
