Reviews

92 points (4.5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Offering attractive savoury complexity, the wine shows lifted aromas of dried cherry, thyme, roasted nut, leather and mushroom on the nose, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that is supple and smooth. The wine displays bright fruit flavours together with polished tannins, making it a lovely wine to partner flavoursome rich dishes. At its best: now to 2021.

 

90 points - Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

Aglianico is a grape variety originating in Greece but now grown mainly in Southern Italy. Dark red, dense but bright and clear. Aromas of white pepper, sweet plum and cedar are evident along with other sweet black fruits, intense and complex. Green tight tannins along with spicy white pepper are on the front balanced with sweet fruit and a tight acidic astringent finish. Well balanced and with good with length of finish, will improve with 3+ years cellaring.

 

90 points – Patrick Eckel, Wine Reviewer

The nose has a little bramble and warmth to dark cherry with some bitter cocoa notes. A drying wine from start to finish with a web of tannin wrapping themselves around black fruits and dark chocolate. The finish sees a return of morello cherry and some middle eastern spice before punchy acidity really hits home. Certainly a prospect for the cellar. Optimal Drinking 2019 – 2030.
