Very pale. Delicate citrusy nose with a mineral note and pear/peach developing in the glass. Sharp acidity, citrus taste, light body. Good persistence and refreshing finish. Drink up on its own or with river fish in a buttery sauce (sole meunière comes to mind).
Deep ruby in colour with a spicy, cedary nose of blackcurrant and cherries with vanilla oak notes and a light floral uptick; medium-bodied, dry, oaky, creamy, sandalwood, plum and currant flavours with a dark chocolate note carried on lively acidity to a firm finish. Drinking well now.
Such an elegant and enthralling Super-Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot made in a modern style. The nose starts with earth and wild berries and moves into tobacco, cherries, plums and savoury spices. It is so young, yet irresistible with its complex blend of earth, fruit and spice. The palate reveals dark fruits, minty herbs, black tar, loam and plums to go with smooth tannins through a long finish. Great followup to the amazing 2009.
