The 2020 vintage received extra time in large barrels before bottling due to the pandemic. This gives an added layer of complexity even though it remains super elegant as the Marchesi’s wines do.
The wines of this estate are refined and elegant with a hauntingly pretty red fruit core of aroma. Sweet nebbiolo aromatics of red cherry, sweet red currant, pomegranate and bright cranberry notes intertwine with underbrush (Sotto Bosco) rubbed provencal herbs, baker's spices and orange peel. It carries a terrific purity and fine balance. Just beautiful. -Keith
