Legend has it that during the waxing moon, at night-time, the Sabina trees shine brighter than ever. And after 2,000 years of existence these trees now appear to be enjoying a rebirth in the light of that silvery moon. During the harvesting season, when the grapes have reached full ripeness, the moon and the sabina trees combine to reflect light onto the bunches hanging on the vines.
The wine: Has a medium-deep, intense Bordeaux-red colour with a brick-red and ruby rim. Dense tears on the inside of the glass. Complex aromas come through on the nose with good integration of the French oak, together with ripe compote fruit, spices and a violet floral touch. Beautiful balance on the palate with ripe, expressive tannins that provide good flesh. Develops nicely into a flavoursome, expressive mid-palate and finish.
