Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"Historic wine of the winery coming from the carefully selected blend of the Monfalletto Estate vineyards in the town of La Morra. Age of vines are between 15 to 50 years, all with South/East and South/West exposures giving the perfect grapes and harmonious ripeness. The clayey and calcareous soils add elegance and complexity. Magnesium oxide and manganese in the soil facilitate the maturation of soft and dense tannins. Altitude between 250 and 300 meters above sea level.

Intense garnet in color, the nose shows floral and spicy notes perfectly blended: tobacco, cherries, cocoa and fresh raspberry highlights. The palate is rich, full-bodied and elegant."
94/100 James Suckling (2012 Vintage)
"Muscular and buff for the vintage with plenty of plum, terra-cotta and dry soil aromas and flavours. Full body, flavourful finish."
93/100 Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage)
"Exotic spice, French oak, mature berry, menthol and a floral note are some of the aromas you'll find on this structured red. The ripe, chewy palate presents mature black cherry, raspberry compote, espresso, licorice and aromatic herb while firm fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink 2019–2027."
90/100 Wine Spectator (2012 Vintage)
"Leans toward the herbal side, with sage, eucalyptus and juniper flavours. Showcases dense, grainy tannins, yet this is long and fresh on the finish. Decant. Best from 2018 through 2030."
