What do you get when you combine ungrafted French vines (almost unheard of in France!) with years of barrel age and exquisite care of experienced vintners? A flat-out stunner. The bouquet is full of the exotic perfumes of a Levantine market, with musk featuring prominently. In the mouth, it’s a basket of blackberries and black and red currants, showing lighter and darker shades by turns – a shifting prism of flavor. The finish is long yet startlingly clean. As a package, it’s the first 95-point wine on Argovino. Bravo!
