Tasting notes

"Hard to find; only 8,000 bottles are produced. A big wine, still tightly bound, intense and intricate. The aromas and flavours are broad and deep. Alcohol is high, but integrated. Decant for a good while and drink now if you must, but I'd wait at least two years." Emily O'Hare, Friuli reds - Expert choice, Decanter Italy 2013
