Longview Saturnus Riserva 2017

750 mL bottle  |   LCBO#:  633015

Made only in the finest years, the Riserva is sourced from the vineyard's 3 oldest parcels of Nebbiolo. The fruit was harvested by hand during the coolest part of the day and immediately brought to the winery for sorting by hand. Traditional vinification followed by an extended post-ferment maceration (4 weeks). Maturation took place in 6 and 7 year-old French puncheons (500l). Bottled un-fined and unfiltered. An alluring and intense nose of liquorice root, dark cherry, violets and roses. The palate is full, firm and complex with an array of spice and savoury fruit. 93 Points, Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
