"The purity of fruit here really makes an impression on you. The nose shines with freshly picked blackcurrants, dark plums, freshly cut herbs, cinnamon, raspberry cheesecake, glazed cherries, orange and lemon rind. The palate is so well-crafted with a silky ball of tannins surrounded by layers of blue and red fruit and enveloping acidity. A long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold." 95 Points

"Blackberry, dark cherry, spice, almonds, violet top note, and plenty of sweet smoky earth and suede leather. Medium-bodied, bright but rich in cherry and red fruits, an orange tang through thick silty tannin, lots of grip and an earthy, inky, tea infused finish of excellent length. The earthy pulse of Chianti is captured well in bottle here, albeit in a fairly modern style." 94 Points
