Unmistakably modern in style, but more conscious of the limits than some.

Starts off with cream and tobacco nose, but instead of going heavy into vulgarities of the oak use, it takes the savoury wood route.

I guess that’s where their restraint in usage of new and small barrels comes into play. The elevage is one year in a mix of new and old barriques is followed by a year in botti.

However, it is still quite big and brawny, oaked and weakish in the middle. Not my style.
