If you’re looking for power, this is the wine for you. Straw-coloured, the bouquet is spicy barnyard with evident oak. Full-bodied on the palate (and more expressive than the nose), the flavours of spicy green pineapple envelope the palate and linger long.
A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the southern region of Tuscany, this red shows blackberry, violets and spice on the nose. It’s lush and juicy on the palate with plum and currant fruits, some herbs and balancing spice notes. Smooth and delicious.
Scents of ripe grapefruit and stone fruit open the way for generously ripe yellow fruit and mango flavours with gritty mineral and lightly refreshing acidity. Another easy-to-like Sicilian charmer.
The fruity freshness of stainless-steel fermentation integrates well with the spicier tones of barrel treatment. Baked lemon tart and toasty caramel aromas. Rich tropical and stone-fruit flavours; lingering butter toffee with orange zest. A palate-pleaser with Dungeness crab cakes.
Produced from three of the five or six grapes that usually go into port — Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz — this wine is savoury blackcurrant and minerally on the nose; it's full bodied and rich on the palate with a kiss of oak. Ideal for barbecued meats.
Pale yellow. Very expressive nose, perfumed with flowery notes and racy minerality. Oak is revealed through toasted bread notes, less obtrusive than the usual vanilla or buttery notes found in oaked white wines. Powerful in its own way on the palate, with assertive acidity, complex taste and a lengthy finish. Keep 10 years.
