To intensify flavour and colour, the vines were stressed from fruit-set to picking without any supplementary water. Vintage is at its best after many years of bottle ageing.
Monichino Vintage retains its youthful intense colour, and although it can be drunk now it will be all the better with cellaring. This wine has blackberry & spice aroma, with intense fruit and cherry flavours, integrated with a good tannic finish, providing years of potential cellaring.
Ideal cellaring conditions are in a cool (12-14 degrees celsius), dark environment, lying down to keep cork moist.
Cellaring 15-30 years.
