Winemaker`s notes:

Very unlike Santa Lucia 2008. Exceptionally complex smell, riper character. A hint of honey, acacia flower, pear, pineapple, anise, with a tinge of Mediterranean herbs like sage, traces of quince on the nose. Everything points to a stronger, ripe-tasting wine, as is soon realized in the mouth. The taste is full-bodied and strong. Very stable. Fruity in the beginning, pretty warm in the middle. Excellently dosed acids, lending it fine balance, exceptional minerality in the middle and towards the end, supporting its intensity, freshness and aftertaste. In the end, mildly salty aftertaste intertwined with glycerol deliciousness. The aftertaste lingers for minutes, and the test of several day tasting from the same bottle without pumping the air out showed remarkable steadiness of the wine the performances of which remained unchanged even after several days in an open bottle.

Combining with food:

Stuffed squids, grilled molluscs, lighter grilled fish, baked chicken and turkey with browned crust, spicy veal, shark.

Aging potential:

best between 2014 – 2018
