Red/black color with no light edges. On the nose, layers of red and black fruits emerge with patience, especially plums and black cherries. The wine is deep and concentrated, with intense and focused oak, chocolate and cranberry, and notes of violets, coffee and licorice. In the mouth it is complex and layered, with still-closed tannins that are very ripe and full. The mid palate is purely defined and delineated, and the finish precise and long. This is a Le Vigne to age.

Wine SpectatorA rich, muscular structure cradles the cherry and strawberry fruit in this intense red. Tar and spice flavors add complexity as this turns tannic and impenetrable on the finish, with an undercurrent of racy acidity. Best from 2017 through 2038. 150 cases imported.
