Giusto di Notri is a powerful yet elegant wine. Pre-harvesting was limited as well as grape clusters’ selection since the vintage did not require any particular intervention. This wine shows extreme complexity and structured, also considering of the marvelous vintage.
Good tannins, strong body with varietals notes of remarkable length. Excellent aging potential.
