Visual

Intense deep purple.

Palate

Precisely, extremely well structured, with a long after taste and well ballanced tannins.

Nose

Concentrated black cherry flavors with delicate coffee tones, dried herbs, exotic spices and minerals.

Winemaking

Fermented and macerated for 3 months in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, followed by another 12 months in large barrels.

The Sorí San Lorenzo vineyard is situated close to the Tanaro River, which undoubtedly helps moderate the temperature and initiates an earlier flowering period. Its sandy limestone soil provides perfect drainage and produces good tannin structure. This wine has depth, concentration and sweet primary fruit, with a touch of violet, meat, sweet cherry and wild raspberry. Lovely, polished tannins with some grip. It has benefitted from a slightly longer maceration, as well as eight months in barriques – seamlessly suffused into the wine – before spending the rest of the ageing period in large oak barrels. - Decanter - 97p
