Reviews & Scores

Incredible aromas of violets, roses and blue fruits. So perfumed. Never smelled a wine like this before. Full body, perfectly integrated tannins and bright, vivid acidity. Extremely long and endless. A seamless and great one. An evocative wine that makes you think. Needs three to five years of bottle age on release. Unique red.
99 Points, James Suckling

The Rabajà cru sometimes shows a harder edge with more mineral definition. Asili, in comparison, offers gorgeous intensity and profound depth. This Riserva shows seamless integration of wild fruit, blue flower, spice, balsam herb and pencil shaving. This is a complete and complex expression with an enduring sense of dimension and structure. I can’t wait to taste this wine one day in the far future when it is further along on its promising evolutionary track.
97 Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

TASTING NOTES

A wine with attractive wild cherry and blackberry fruit aromas, the 2015 has supple textures and juicy ripe fruit flavours balanced by lively redcurrant characters and a hint of savoury spice on the finish. This wine will be delicious to drink from release. Drink from 2017 to 2020.Armit Wines
