Castra Rubra


Noblesse Serena Rubra 2012

55% Cab Franc, 45% Cab Sauvignon. Full-bodied, dark, a little earthy with nice fruit notes showing through. Not as bright as a Loire Valley Cab Franc, yet still tasty and interesting. With gnocchi and Brussels sprouts on a Wednesday. — 2 months ago

Rubra Mixtura Red Blend

I give this a rather high ratings for my standards, it really came through in terms of what I was hoping g to get from it. A quite minerally, stony bony dry finish, yet a nice bit of funkiness and a raw feeling yet well made. Quite light, had it with seafood, paired really well IMO. — 4 years ago

Stilla Rubra Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

On open nose is that deep dark blackberry fruit. Graphite. Wow.

Palate is insane. Huge vibrancy. Blackberry. Mineral. Dense. Incredible. Long. So well made. Some licorice and spice. Some earth

Long finish.

More cornas than fluffy montepulciano on open.

As this breathes nose is more menthol. Palate is deep dense plum. Great structure. Juicy.

Nimbus Premium Pinot Noir 2011

Another great surprise from Bulgaria! An excellent pinot noir, rich, thick, less elegant and more powerful. I like it! — 6 years ago

Bodegas Toneles

22 Mendoza Malbec 2021

Cor rubra não muito escura, com um corpo denso de lágrimas lentas. Um bom aroma de frutas vermelhas com certa homogeneidade com álcool bem no fundo. Na boca é bem encorpado e de forte presença, tem uma acidez marcante e um rastro longo de madeira amarga e com sensaçãode caqui. — 2 years ago
