A medium red in colour, fresh herbs, blackberry and a touch of leather and graphite have great presence on the nose. The palate is elegant and builds from a baseline of understated but glossy blue and black fruits; oak gives a gentle spice and tannins are beautifully integrated in terms of the texture and flow. There is such purity to the fruit with blackberry and blueberry to finish with just enough cool graphite and tobacco influence to provide great complexity.92 pts - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)
Deep ruby with a touch of brick at the rim. Blackberry, bramble and smoke on the nose. Bright dark fruits on palate-entry then it morphs into a very savoury beast with smoked meat, blood and graphite characters. Tannins are firm and speak of their Italian heritage but still allow the wine to flow long.
