(2019) Comes only from the slopes with long sunset exposure - hence the name - and at least 90 days appassimento, followed by 24 months in oak - mostly large barrels - and a year in bottle. Delightful dried cherry and herbs, a nice note of mneatness, but elegance too. Andrea says it is a "25 year wine." In the mouth lovely lifted cherry and floral aromas come to fruition, delicate and energetic flavours despite being a big wine - a gentle giant - with such lovey precision yet warmth and weight with that touch of sweet dried fruit in the finish.
(2019) Similar grape blend as the regular Costasera, from the same vineyard, but has 10% Oseleta. Appassimento never less than 120 days. The Oselleta has a real impact again, giving, like the Toar and pure Oselleta also tasted, a firm, graphite character, tightening up the picture, and the ripe cherry and florals just showing throug beautifully. The beautiful sweetness of the fruit here is all-encompassing, with a salty touch to the acidity, such ripe chocolaty tannins and fabulous length: fruit, elegance, touches of cocoa and spices, but all about freshness and tang.
