Sourced from the vineyard in the Riparbella area, Prima Pietra is structure and elegance personified, an eloquent expression of the exceptional quality of its terroir. The bouquet is full-volumed and near-endless, with fragrances of wild red berry melding into delicate notes of spice. The palate is complex, displaying impressive extractive depth and tannins that are dense, smooth, and glossy.
