Decanter Magazine Review
Despite a cool, rainy spring, the 2016 vintage is one of the best in recent years due to a warm summer that never exceeded 35°C. Full of dark-fruit intensity - plum and cassis the wine is layered with dark chocolate, black liquorice and a toasty finish with cherry notes. Velvety and extracted, it's thick on the palate due to its youthful character. Great potential to age, with a superb natural acidity from the higher vineyard of the estate above Villa della Torre, balancing its richness of fruit and full body. Drinking Window 2021-2040
A well-structured, complex, elegant, and velvety wine, with intense ruby red color. It has a warm and spicy bouquet, with aromas of raisins. This wine is traditionally consumed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles, and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes and perfectly suited for drinking with Asian and Middle-Eastern dishes. This wine can age for 20 years.
