From the producer: The 2017 Basalte was sourced form our own Appassionata estate vineyard, the Medici vineyard, which we farm, and our neighbors at Lia's vineyard. These vineyards have rocky, volcanic clay and basalt soils that lend themselves to full-bodied, firmly structured wines. The 2017 Basalte has dense, dark fruit with a vibrant buzz on the mid-palate. It is rich and juicy becuase of the excellent ripeness, but has a fine tannic structure that maintains the elegant style we are seeking.
