Deep ruby red in colour with perfumes of red rose petals and dried cherries giving way to a dark, black cherry and spice character on the palate with rounded tannins and a characteristic bitter twist. Sweet and luscious but not cloying, it has dried fruit and cinnamon perfumes on the finish.
Deep coloured with a concentrated chocolate and dark plum perfume and a touch of liquorice that gives way to a full-bodied and powerful palate. Dark red fruit dominates the palate with the characteristic tannin of Negroamaro which melts into a long, chocolately finish.
A salmon pink wine with astonishing complexity; raspberries, fresh cherries, orange blossom and toasted hazelnuts all come through. On the palate there is a minerality and lemony crispness that persists through the long finish.
Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.
Awarded 87 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of Amarone (see blue link below).
Pale yellow colour with green glints. An intense nose with clear aromas of tropical fruits and aromatic herbs. A crisp, and very tasty wine with light acidity and structure. Pronounced flavours of grapefruit, lemon and peach. A delicious and interesting alternative to Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
Golden yellow in colour with greenish hints. Clean, powerful and fresh on the nose, the palate is full of fruity, herbal flavours with a touch of fennel coming through on the finish. Full flavoured and powerful but well balanced with a silky texture and wonderful length.
Made by the Catena family, this is a rich, cassis-laden Cabernet with ripe blackcurrant and plum fruit all over the place. A hint of minty eucalyptus and toasty oak spice add depth and complexity. Smooth tannins and freshness.
