From the very first sip, I absolutely fell in love with this wine. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is now entering it’s prime window of drinkability. 25% of the grapes were dried in the Appassimento method, to concentrate the flavours and bring lots of texture and loads of complexity. While the Appassimento makes this wine thicker and bolder, there’s freshness and acidity in this wine which reflects the perfect balance and justifies the style. Seductive aromas of black cherry, cassis, black currant, sage, cocoa, pepper and tobacco, all intermingling in a fantastic sequence that makes me just want to keep my nose in the glass. The flavours are bold but precise, highlighting the best attributes of the Cabernet grape including eucalyptus and graphite. Dark fruits are obvious with dark cherry and blackberry, but the appassimento brings figs, raisins and caramel to the equation. The finish is long and spicy showing ripe tannins and oak spices. An extraordinary price for the quality of the delivery! (CWC, 15/06/23).
