Aged for 12 months in concrete tanks and in the barrel, and 12 months in the bottle

Dark hues of ruby red. An aroma that expresses the grapes’ perfect maturation through hints of ripe red fruit. The time spent by some of the grapes aging in French oak smoothly rounds off the aromatic bouquet with complexity and structure.

The polished freshness and characteristic silky tannins of the blended varieties forge a lingering whirlwind on the tongue.


Press


Score: 93/100. “The 2016 ‘Pittoresco’ is a fantastic showing in the vintage. It instantly opens to inviting aromas of cherries and dark berries which are woven together with tobacco, grilled herbs, dried spice and leather nuances that all take shape. On the palate this possesses a medium body that is well-balanced with a wonderful combination of fruit and acidity which provide a gorgeous freshness that persists through the finish. This is drinking excellent today and also has the potential to evolve for a decade.”

“This is really beautiful and generous with plum and currant flavors, as well as ripe, rich tannins. Structured and flavorful. Drink after 2020.”

One black glass awarded in the 2019 edition.
