Wine-making and Aging:
Fermentation and maceration for at least 20 days, based on the lot, at a controlled temperature of <30°C. Maturation for 12 months In new and used French oak barriques (Allier), followed by 12 months in large oak barrels from Slavonia. Then bottle aged for at least six months
Intense ruby red COlour with garnet highlights.
Clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aroma, rich in evolved overtones, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries and a light touch of vanilla.
Warm with supple tannins, great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.
Bright and vivid with crushed raspberries and orange peel on the nose. Full body, tight and solid tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Pretty austerity. Better in 2019 when the tannins soften. - James Suckling 93 Points
Rose, strawberry, cherry and black pepper aromas and flavors are the highlights of this red. The unyielding structure provides support, surrounded by a lush texture. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033. 12,500 cases made. -BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 92 Points
Red berry, toast and black spice aromas lead the nose, accented by whiffs of espresso. The palate offers licorice, clove, dried cherry and vanilla notes, while a backbone of fine-grained tannins provides support. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 91 Points
Appealing nose with red cherry and floral notes; a little less imposing on the palate but a charming, easy-going style, without the intensity and power of some. - Decanter Magazine 91 Points
