Description

ABV: 13.5%

APPEARANCE: Dense, deep purple

AROMAS: Initially very oaky on the nose but opens up to show mature damson, blackcurrant and plum fruit; some very light smoky and spicy notes may be apparent too

TASTE: Rich and concentrated dark red fruits with a savoury twist; altogether elegant and well balanced. Tannins are surprisingly mellow; full bodied, with a lovely long aftertaste

FOOD PAIRING: Serve with spicy foods, steaks, roasts, casseroles or mature hard cheeses

OVERALL: This is a stunning five grape blend (comprising Merlot, Cab Sauv, Teroldego, Tannat & Ancellotta), made only in the best vintages. Powerful and with a great structure, the wine will evolve and has considerable ageing potential. Ideally decant before drinking!

A more recent vintage, the 2017, scored 89 points in Decanter (October 2019).
