Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Pierredon - L'Inizio 2009 - Wine

L'Inizio
L'Inizio
The right tone Fresh and elegant. A pure expression of the estate, to produce wines of conviviality. Daybreak. The full expression of the fruit,in a wine that is both crisp and voluptuous. Every great story must have a beginning...this is l'Inizio. The estate's first cuvée. A young powerful blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah... Clear aromas of black cherry and coffee as well as powerful tannins that can be smoothed by decanting, this will seduce anyone who likes their wines robust.
