Tasting Notes

Ripe blackberry nose - very aromatic. Full, strong entry with grainy dissolved tannins and a melée of red and black fruits. Really quite brambly in nature with broad middle palate weight and mineral touches. Zippy, lively, finely crafted and well integrated and wonderful length - very good potential. 17.5 points

Reviews & Scores

Ruby-red. Very dark aromas of medicinal black cherry and licorice. Supple and moderately sweet but a bit youthfully bound-up. Flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice are currently shortened by the wine's building tannins. Does it have enough mid-palate stuffing? 88-90 points

2007 Camartina, Querciabella

Bottle 75cl £70.68

TASTING NOTES

Very deep colour with a delicate mineral nose. On the palate the wine bursts with ripe blackcurrant fruit and elegant herbaceous notes, wrapped around a super fine, grainy tannic structure. As ever, beautifully dissolved oak and vanilla nuances merge with a haunting mineral quality. The core of acidity is ripe and assertive - lifting the cassis fruit emphasis and giving...
