    A blend of 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio. Semi translucent dark red colour with black shaded edges and a light red hue. Fragrant red currant and red raspberry scents infused with fresh herbs are trailed by stony earth like notes, hints of graphite and spice. Vibrant red cherry and raspberry fruits have a crunchy feel underpinned by crisp acidity. Elements of crushed rock, earthy graphite and spicy dried herbs lie underneath. Bright, tense finish with gritty tannins leading into a fresh, robust aftertaste.

    Lots of red plums here with glazed cherries and lemons. Medium body, fine and silky tannins and a refined finish. Drink now.

    Aromas of red berry, rose, thyme and a whiff of camphor shape the fragrant nose. Sleek and graceful, the lithe, savory palate delivers juicy strawberry, crushed raspberry, Mediterranean herbs and white pepper framed in glossy tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note evoking smoky flint lingers on the finish.
