The 2015 Rosso de Veo is monstrously intense yet wonderfully balanced, showing masses of crushed black cherry, balsamic spice, stone dust and wild, exotic florals on the nose. Velvety textures give way to ripe red and blue berries with a spicy-citrus twang, backed by stimulating acids, as saline-minerality saturates under a coating of liquid violets. This finishes long, staining the palate with fruit concentrate and grippy tannins, yet considering how structured this is, there’s a balance here that provides plenty of pleasure already. This is simply gorgeous and has a very bright future ahead of it. (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2021)

Lots of VA on the nose. Bold and intense with notes of dark cherry, herbs, and oak. Strong tannins smooth out pretty quickly. A streak of acidity makes for a well-balanced and nicely-structured wine. Purchased at Popina in Brooklyn, NY.
