Tasting notes

The wine is deep purple in colour with smoky, earthy aromas and seductive hints of tobacco and graphite. Notes of ripe black cherries, cassis, tobacco and leather come through on the palate of this big-structured, full-bodied wine.

"Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of ripe dark plum, cherry-cola, graphite, sandalwood and spicy cocoa, with a sexy violet topnote. At once juicy and deeply pitched, offering rich red berry and dark cherry flavors complicated by smoky minerality and a hint of cocoa. Opens slowly and builds well with air, which bodes well for this wine's future. The long finish features chewy, mounting tannins and a floral quality." (Terra di Lavoro 2011) 93 points, Ian D'agata, Vinous Media, Sept 2011

Food matching

This wine pairs beautifully with Italian or French pot roasts, crusted lamb carrè or aged cuts of beef.
