48% Grenache, 45% Shiraz, 7% Sagrantino
Intense garnet red
Bramble herbs with hints of cracked black pepper underpinned with earthy, dark fruit characters of Satsuma plum, black cherry and liquorice.
Grenache plays a leading role and provides dark cherry lift and a seductive, almost slippery mid palate. Shiraz provides some weight to the juicy mouthfeel as well as dark fruits and earthy olive tapenade characters. And finally Sagrantino, despite its low proportion, adds beautiful dry earth, cigar box-like savoury lift with those signature tannins giving a drying, snappy finish.
Aged in fine grained oak, predominantly hogsheads (100% old French Oak) for 18 months.
