(2012 Vintage) In the 1920s the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamt of creating a ‘thoroughbred’ wine and for him, as for all the aristocracy of the time, the ideal was Bordeaux. This is how he described it in a letter to the esteemed wine critic, Luigi Veronelli dated 11 June 1974:
Unbelievable wine, drank November 2016 at Pamplemousse with Miles & Tatiana. Very elegant, fully resolved. Drinking beautifully. What a wine!
Seriously good wine. Great ending.
