Reviews & Scores

The grape?s deep purple skin harbours an abundance of assertive tannins while its bouquet is redolent of ripe wild berries, aromatic herbs and fine spices. Elegantly pervasive, laying out red fruits lifted by spice, vanilla and aromatic herbs. The palate is characterful, powerful and penetrating, mirroring the sensations on the nose.
One of the most structured, muscular wines there is and one that demands great red meat-based dishes, such as roast leg of lamb, feathered game, roast shank of pork or veal and charcoal-grilled red meats.
