"Plenty of candied orange and dried cherry in the opulent nose, then a ton of bitter chocolate and dry tannins on the finish, making this a bit extreme. Where is the harmony? Very limited food compatibility. Drink now."

"Massive black fruit, and correspondingly large and seriously chewy, dry tannins. This wine needs some substantial food to cope with the latter. Love the finish. Drink now."

"Deep and earthy nose with a ripe black-fruit and herbal character. Some dried spices such as thyme as well. Full body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now."

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, Jan/2017

2014 -

"(fermented in stainless steel tanks, followed by 15 months of aging in French oak barrels, 40 percent of them new) Brilliant purple. Highly perfumed dark berry, vanilla and violet scents are complemented by hints of licorice and oak spices. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering blackberry and blueberry flavors that are lifted and given spine by juicy acidity. In a supple, fruit-driven style, finishing with strong punch, harmonious tannins and excellent, spicy persistence."

"Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruit, incense and violet aromas pick up a suggestion of five-spice powder with air. Supple, seamless and concentrated, offering juicy boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and an enlivening jolt of white pepper. The tenacious floral finish is framed by velvety tannins."
