A limited 40th Anniversary bottling celebrating Mauro’s long term dedication to his winery, this was bottle 966 of 3,500. There was just one large, 15HL barrel of this wine produced, and is a selection of the best fruit aged for 30 months. 65% of the fruit for this wine was sourced from the Cerretta cru, and 35% from the Roncaglie cru in La Morra. The aromatics are deep and brooding, in stark contrast to its pale garnet hue. Notes of black cherry, spiced ripe plums, masculine rose petals and summertime sappy balsam resin emerge.
The bouquet conveys a large scale, manly overall package, while the palate is equally structured and power packed with its mega-ripe fruit and massive overall scale. Caressing acidity and sweet, succulent, ripe tannins bring-up the long finish. This goes on and on in the mouth and the tannin integration is impressively articulated. A true thing of beauty, the 2019 Selezione Limitada is a force to be reckoned with.
