Small batches kept separate during fermentation, after pressing, and throughout the first year of aging. Components blended in several phrases during the second year of barrel aging. Aged 20 months in 100% French oak barrels (85% new French oak). Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, incense, dark chocolate, caramelized oak, and toffee; and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, and a lengthy persistent finish
