Big, rich, concentrated and seductive with incredible depth. Loads of crushed berry, black liquorice, a touch of dried herbs that linger on the sides of the tongue; dense and structured with masses of penetrating flavours and unbelievable length. Amazingly, as decadent as this wine is, it still maintains a wonderful freshness. A great match with strong cheese and rich meat dishes.
Full ruby. Recognizable Bordeaux origin in the fruity/oaky nose. On the firm side on the palate; clean, fruity taste. Enjoy now.
Aromas of red berries, strawberry and raspberry with forest-floor hints precede a palate defined by juicy acidity. Well textured and quite broad with earthy undertones, supported by well-integrated tannins and some elegant schiste notes; a touch of spice in the finish.
Dark colour. Oak hits your nose first, followed by notes of black fruits. Full-bodied but velvety, the tannins have melted somewhat, but they remain firm and a little astringent. The finish is tight and clean with notes of ripe fruits, lifted by acidity. Very reasonable price given the vintage.
Dense purple colour. Cedary, spicy, herbal, blackberry nose with notes of pepper. Medium- to full-bodied, dry and savoury, firmly structured with black olive and black plum flavours, finishing on seductive ripe tannins.
Malvasia and Trebbiano make up this perfumed, soft Vin Santo, one of the most floral and delicate I've had. honeyed orange, rosewater, citrus cake, marmalade, candied almond drapes along a medium bodied palate, one finishing with cinnamon and dried apricot notes along with a puff of heat. Enjoy now with olive oil cake or biscotti.
