Product description

This deep ruby-red wine has powerful, complex aromas of dried plums and balsamic (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet) on the palate, soft and with bright acidity, the wine shows flavors of baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon. Structured but noble, delicate tannins precede a long finish.

96 Points - James Suckling

I love the semidried, cranberry-like fruit base to the aromas, decorated by notes of very dark chocolate and coffee bean. Medium-to full-bodied with a very silky, refined feel to the palate. Tight bead of super clean fruit and fine, polished tannins. Long yet tight, crystal-clear finish that lingers. Exquisite Amarone. The tight, focused and balanced nature to this makes you want to drink it now. But it will get even better with some bottle age. Try from 2023.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Ripe black-skinned fruit, blue flower and baking spice aromas form the nose of this full-bodied red along with a whiff of cedar. Concentrated but possessing a weightless elegance, the smooth, enveloping palate delivers prune marinated in spirits, black cherry, licorice and cocoa framed in velvety tannins. Cellar Selection.
