Bright ruby red in colour, with perfumes of ripe blackberry fruit, red cherry and touch of spice. On the palate it is ripe and juicy but still fine and elegant in the Selvapiana style, with a tight structure and lifted, floral finish with refreshing acidity.
"Thyme, woodland berry and floral aromas mingle with a whiff of tilled earth. The taut linear palate evokes juicy plum, Morello cherry, underbrush and tobacco alongside polished tannins and vibrant acidity. Enjoy now for its pristine fruit and precision or hold for more complexity." (2016 vintage) 92 points, Wine Enthusiast
"The deep black-fruited note, dark cherry and touch of cedar with a polished finish are exemplary and undervalued at this price." Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post, March 2019
"Delicate aromas of subtle herbs and oak. The palate is elegant and fresh with flavours of red berries, liquorice and plum to finish. Balanced, ripe, smooth tannins." 90 points, Decanter Magazine, March 2017
