Winemaker's Notes

Racy yet very textural. Powerful nose with an interesting combination of fruit and mineral while the palate has extreme impact and focus. Signature Giaconda flavors of meal and hazelnut, great length and balance. This is all about concentration with great finesse. Don't miss this as it should turn out to be a real classic.

"Incredibly complex bouquet offers grand cru Burgundy notes of stone fruits, melon, honey, iodine, licorice, minerals, smoked meat and jasmine; this could pass for a ripe Corton-Charlemagne. Then rich, broad and almost painfully concentrated, showing a range of orchard and citrus fruit flavors, superb minerality and amazing depth. The finish is a seemingly endless display of power, concentration and breadth of flavor."
-International Wine Cellar
