Tasting notes

"Darkly floral and rich, the 2019 Rosso is youthfully backward in the glass, teasing the senses with mineral-tinged currants and plums underscored by sage and crushed rocks. This is luxuriously silky and smooth on the palate, with ripe red and black fruits carried across a core of saline-tinged acidity, as violet inner florals and menthol add lift toward the close. Cocoa and licorice nuances linger impossibly long, along with a saturation of fine tannin, and yet the wine remains remarkably fresh. This is just a baby today, yet stunning all the same." 94 points, Eric Guido, Vinous (April 2023)
