Don Guerino Gran Reserva Traços 2017 300cl / Double Magnum!!

£159.00

Previously available only in standard 75cl format, we have launched Don Guerino’s flagship red in Double Magnum (300cl) – a first for any Brazilian wine in the UK!

As well as being a fine wine, the substantial bottle will serve as a talking point and probably too as the centrepiece of any dining table..

Decanter magazine, in October 2019, described this four* grape blend as having ‘elegant aromas with notes of ripe cherry, plum and a hint of spice…ripe and juicy with crisp acidity..and sufficient sturdy structure to age well’. Read more below.

Each bottle is supplied in its own wooden case – see image.

*Teroldego, Tannat, Merlot & Malbec (2015 vintage also included Cab Sauv & Ancellotta but not Malbec – see tasting note below)

APPEARANCE: Dark purple

AROMAS: Notes of blackcurrant, plum and cherry overlaying oak, some smokiness and touch of spice

TASTE: Full bodied; dark ripe fruits, savoury, more spice. Robust acidity and firm tannins, so ageing potential is excellent
