Sourced from the Guardiola Cru, which sits at the highest elevation, ranging from 800 to almost 1,000 meters and consists of grey/black volcanic sand, basaltic pebbles, a touch of ash. This unique terroir gives the wine a distinct character, which takes center stage. As this begins to unwind it releases pretty aromas of wild red berries, cherries and cassis, which are laced with smoke, fresh roses and eucalyptus notes that all take shape beautifully. On the palate this shows wonderful elegance and refinement, with fine, silky tannins and gorgeous acidity. Everything comes together seamlessly on the finish, which displays wonderful vibrancy and length. Overall, this is a brilliant wine which certianly has a remaekable future ahead. 98% Nerello Mascalese and 2% Nerello Cappuccio, from between 50 and 70 years old.
