Time of release
The deep red coloured rim of the meniscus typifies its power. Lifted nose of liquorice and mint amongst a barrage of ripe red fruits. Big, drying tannic finish balanced against abundant natural acidity. A beauty, with great longevity. 15.0 percent alcohol/volume.

Medium deep purple crimson. Deep colour. Crushed ant, aniseed, dark berry aromas with herb, leafy notes. Rich voluminous wine with dark berry, espresso. chinotto flavours, chocolaty dry tannins and underlying savoury nuances. Finishes leafy firm, but with plenty of flavour length. Has power and vinosity but still in parts. 2016 - 2025 - 88 points

Medium deep colour. Dark cherry, blackberry, mocha aromas with graphite notes. Well concentrated, bouyant. and generous wine with lovely dark berry mocha flavours, some pastille notes and fine persistent chalky brambly tannins. Finishes firm with lovely bitter chinotto graphite notes. A lovely balance between fruit, volume and structure. Vigorous yet sweet fruited and complex. 15% Alc 95 points – Now – 2035
