When to Drink Domaine Benedetti, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Domaine Benedetti can be enjoyed on the young side. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for about 1 hour allowing the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Domaine Benedetti is usually better with 1-3 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages, the wine should be consumed within 2-9 years after the vintage.
