Deep, powerful ruby red colour with a dense texture. The bouquet is strong and very attractive with a slight sweetness that is reminiscent of plum jam and cherries preserved in spirit. Firm but soft and silky tannins on the palate and an attractive acidity to balance the ample body. Long and intense on the finish with hints of baked fruit and a touch of spiciness. Pairings: Ideal drunk on its own after dinner. Also very good with red meats and other tasty dishes. Excellent with mature cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino. The softness of the wine apparent in some years makes it a good match with gorgonzola.

Wine SpectatorA full-bodied red, with rich flavors of fig cake, dried apricot, smoky mineral and espresso, enlivened by bright, mouthwatering acidity and wrapped around a block of chewy tannins. Expressive hints of bergamot and dried lavender show on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,175 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBaked plum, baking spice, blue flower and pipe tobacco meld together with earthy aromas of new leather and a whiff of underbrush on this impressive wine. The firmly structured palate offers dried black cherry, blackberry jam, dark chocolate and star anise. Firm velvety tannins envelope the palate. Drink 2019-2029.
