Wine tasting notes

Deep coloured with a concentrated chocolate and dark plum perfume and a touch of liquorice that gives way to a full-bodied and powerful palate. Dark red fruit dominates the palate with the characteristic tannin of Negroamaro which melts into a long, chocolately finish.

Expert Reviews

Wine Spectator (2015)88 pts

A juicy, medium-bodied red, with a fragrant profile of ripe raspberry, wild herb, Turkish bazaar spices and bergamot. Supple tannins firm the finish. Drink now through 2020

Wine Enthusiast (2016)86 pts

Strawberry jam and green herb aromas are joined by a delicate floral flavor on the medium-bodied palate. Bright acidity and grainy tannins lead to a crisp, dry finish.

Vinification Notes

On arrival at the cellars, the grapes were pressed, destemmed and cooled to 18°C and the must was allowed to ferment at its own pace. After racking in mid-November, the wine remained in an underground cement tank where the temperature did not exceed 10°C until bottling under stelvin closure in May 2008.
