It's one of our best-rated Italian reds and a heady red, full of concentrated black fruits and sweet spices. A baby Amarone at the snip of it's big brother's asking price.
"Corpulence, medium to full-bodied personality, low acidity, attractive silkiness, and copious quantities of herb-tinged cassis fruit have always made this wine a winner.". Robert Parker.
Intense blackberry, blackcurrant, undertones of mint, spice and cigar box on the nose. On the palate are plenty of blackcurrant and cassis, fresh mint, subtle oak and soft tannins. Great with venison.
Rustic aromas of raspberries, mullberries and cooking spices permeate from an intensely ruby coloured wine. A firm, tannic palate of spice and dark fruits leads to a layered, dry finish.
Expect a deliciously supple red fruit character with multilayered flavours of plums, black currants and earthy savoury notes, all backed up by good structure and ripe tannins.
