Vine age for this wine is an incredible 150 years! This is the top wine from I Custodi and it is a blend of Nerello Mascalese (80%), Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante. 2008 saw quite a bit of variation at harvest and was considered a warm vintage. Tannins are still fine grained, but fruit is more dark and stewed in nature. Incredibly textured and concentrated, this wine will easily hold over the next five years.
