PRIMA PIETRA TOSCANA 2011

Sourced from the vineyard in the Riparbella area, Prima Pietra is structure and elegance personified, an eloquent expression of the exceptional quality of its terroir. The bouquet is full-volumed and near-endless, with fragrances of wild red berry melding into delicate notes of spice. The palate is complex, displaying impressive extractive depth and tannins that are dense, smooth, and glossy.
