"Hold the glass to your nose: gunpowder and roses. War and love. Almost Nebbiolo-like. Finer than Sankt Paul. Quite stunning, in fact. Velvet and iron. Rust and cranberries, Pomegranate and spices. This is a powerhouse of beauty. A colosseum – elliptical, carved from stone, magnificent, intimidating, awesome, immovable. As full of light as it is of shadow."
Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
wine writer for Jancis Robinson
