93 Points, James Suckling

A fresh, lightly exotic nose, offering dates, figs, fresh earth and a hint of toasted coconut. On the palate there’s a fresh, focused bead of ripe and dried fruit, riding equally intense, firm tannins. Long finish. From organically grown grapes. There’s a youthful feel to this. It’s just at the start of a long life. Give it a year or so to settle in. Best from 2023.

Winemaker Notes

The Monte Sant’Urbano property in the municipality of Fumane: located on a hill at between 280 and 350 m./a.s.l., it benefits from excellent exposure to sunlight. The average age of the vines is high. Manual selection of the finest bunches followed by drying for around 100 days, with a loss of about 40% in the weight of the grapes. These are destemmed and pressed and fermentation with maceration takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. 24 months in 500 l. French oak tonneaux and 18 months in medium-to-large Slavonian oak casks. Maturation in bottle for 12 months.
