    September 26, 2020 - Dark ruby colour with no signs of ageing yet.
    Expressive aromas of fresh cherry, laurel, juniper berries, licorice and sweet tobacco. Full bodied, almost off-dry with integrated tannins, some balanced acidity and ripe fruit. The finish is very long with a bitter twist.

    A big bold wine with still enough complexity and freshness to keep my attention. Maybe a bit too much extraction, oak and and alcohol at some days but tonight I liked it.

    May 21, 2017 - Nobody has reviewed this in a year and a half. I think it is pasted it's peak. Very sweet; reminds me of Apothic Red, except it is more balanced and complex, and a bigger wine overall. But the very jammy up front sweet fruit turns me off. Worse the second day. I can't believe the price the winery charges for this wine. I'm glad it was a gift.

    October 31, 2015 - Dark red color, concentrate of dark fruits and explosives, the sweet fruits is balanced with a good acidity and nice gripping tannins, very long finish and really a nice wine from south Italy
