Notes

On the nose it has superb freshness and clarity of fruit, red cherries with spice and bracken-like complexity; the oak is super discreet, the vineyard’s signature is always evident in La Chiave. Sweet but not overly ripe-red fruit mingle comfortably with freshly turned earth, a hint of turmeric and a touch of star anise and the beautiful fragrance of just-picked red cherries. Vibrant racy redcurrant to red-cherry fruit is effortlessly guided across the palate by cedar, powdery, fluffy tannins that give it an extra dimension.
