Single vineyard four km from the sea in the Maremma, W Tuscany. Owned by the Matta family of Castello Vicchiomaggio in Greve, Chianti region.
Classification: DOC Maremma
Grape Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Description: about 14 months in barriques. Intense ruby red with purple undertones, dark and deep.
On the nose evident notes of eucalyptus, mixed ripe dark berries and delicate spices. More complex notes develop after a few minutes in the glass with hints of chocolate, vanilla and a marked minerality. Deep and rich, an aftertaste of delicate richness and fresh tannins convey an excellent balance.
Enjoyable when released, will mature nicely for 10-15 years from the harvest.
