Raised for 18 months in French barriques, the 2020 Greppicaia is an opaque red with a tinge of purple and offers an opulent bouquet of toasted vanilla bean, black plum, lavender oil, and cedar. Full-bodied, it’s another powerfully structured wine, with ripe tannins and a long and lasting finish. A more Mediterranean sensibility comes through on the finish with notes of black olive, and it also develops an umami-like richness that I think this wine will lean into with age, moving into notes of shitake.

Blackcurrants and black berries with some red and black licorice as well as violets. Medium to full body. Firm and chewy tannins with pretty focus and brightness. Vertical finish. Needs two or three years to come together but already attractive. Drink after 2024.
