Delicious and heady stuff. Perfumed, floral and tangy.

Best ever from here; just stunning. Structured and built to age, it also caresses the palate with Marco's telltale seductiveness. Costs barely anything; beats most. Great combo.

Supple notes of leather and red fruits. Nice sweetness on the mid palette with raspberries and rose petals. Finishes with a touch of weight, and a kiss of oak. Needs at least 3 years in the bottle.

Leave in the cellar. Harsh, drying tannins. Out of balance at the moment in my opinion.

It takes a mere four hours in the decanter for the wine to show itself, the potential that its having. Second day and the elements are even more defined and the true complexity of the wine reveals itself. This is a beauty with great potential. Red and dark cherries, fruit pips, minelrals, tar, damp undergrowth and roses. Would love to see this wine in the mid 2020’s. Rated on today’s performance

Too young. The tannins are just too dominant at this stage. Good juice though

Full bodied, rich, voluptuous, a decedent collection of wild fruits. It's an affair!
