From a small parcel of forty year old vines planted in the Starderi cru that Olek is lucky enough to rent from an elderly couple who can no longer tend its steep slopes. This spent two months on skins before being pressed off to old botti for a couple of years. The soils here are a little softer and the site a little less exposed than elsewhere in the region and as a result this is already incredibly expressive with a beautiful acidity and even tannins, suggesting it has a long life ahead. Starderi is typically the earlier drinking of Olek's wines, though in 2019 it is quite the powerhouse and will benefit from a few more years in bottle before approaching its optimal drinking window.
