From washed limestone soils, mineral and floral top yields to chalky-stony notes underpinned by a taut citrus core and good length, wrapped in juicy acidity before a slightly zesty close.
A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Deep ruby colour with an earthy, cherry nose; medium-bodied, dry, cherry flavour with a vanilla oak note and soft tannins. A pleasing spaghetti wine.
Now selling for a few dollars less than in the past, this is affordable, everyday bubbly. It leans a little to tropical-fruit ripeness, but is otherwise pretty stylish with good weight, persistent mousse and appealing creamy smoothness.
The fruity nose has good intensity and a mineral touch. On the palate, everything is in order, clean taste and perfectly dry, the finish has a good length. What more can you ask for at this price?
Refined red and dark fruit scents with cigar box and a whiff of mint evolving to blackberry and red currant flavours wrapped in velvety smooth tannins; dark chocolate, fruit and spice on the well-integrated finish.
Deep, complex fruity nose with floral notes; a hint of tar, a touch of caramel. Layers of flavours on the palate in a rich and velvety texture. Tannins are felt on the palate but they are soft and in perfect balance, as is everything else. A truly great wine, to drink now or over the next decade.
A perfume of blackcurrant, cherry, herbs, cocoa powder, violets and spice meets up with a medium-bodied palate which presents soft tannins and sound acidity. Great length and ready to drink.
