“Intense aromas of black cherries, lavender and spice, such as nutmeg. Some sandalwood and bark, too. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and tannins for the vintage. Rather chewy, suggesting that additional bottle age is needed. Try after 2026.”

“Rich ruby with a rich garnet edge. Opens on the nose with emphatically ripe notes, pickled cherries and dried plums, plus lots of molasses, seems like a Brunello from days gone by. Blossom on the palate then rich, lots of ripe fruit, opens with hearty, grippy tannins, lots of power, delicately bitter finish.”

“Balsamic and decidedly modern alternating notes of red flowers with hints of lime, grapefruit, white pepper, crushed chalk, gunshot powder, guaranà, cut cedar and coriander. Medium to full bodied, very soft, rounded tannins and a juicy, harmonic finale of pleasurable luminosity. Better from 2025.” – Raffaele Vecchione
