Winemaker's Notes:

The color is intense and always very young. At first, the aroma arrives over one period of rather serious closing. In the mouth there is a great general presence without being easy to define in the details; it is a little austere and tannins are rather serious. Balance will return later, the minerality is the guaranteeing one. Drink now through 2012.
