APPEARANCE: Exceptionally deep, inky-purple colour
AROMAS: Dense dark brambly fruit, with hints of raspberry or redcurrant
TASTE: A grape originally from NE Italy, here boasting many different flavours – ripe black cherry, licorice, traces of vanilla and even some smokiness all apparent. Tannins still have a little bite, acidity is quite high and there is a bittersweet hint of almond on the finish
FOOD PAIRING: A perfect match for roast lamb, pork or BBQ beef
OVERALL: Quickly became our bestselling red when first introduced three years ago – and has been outstanding ever since!
