TASTING NOTE: (Translated from the Italian) Extraordinary strong taste of fruits with perfect smoothness, as well as full fragrance and freshness, in its deep colour that fills up the glass completely. Extraordinary balance among the three tones of taste, with acidity and strong tannin wrapped in the grapes' softness. Incredible concentration and production process of exceptional and clear transformation. Bravo! Score - 98 (Luca Maroni, lucamaroni.com, 2020) Price $ 20.95
