Tasting Note:

Big, explosive, concentrated dark berry fruit infused with blood orange, scorched earth and sweet spice characteristics. The bold and powerful flavours interwoven with binding but sweet tannins. A dominant, forceful wine. A blockbuster. A vineyard selection from within the Ginestra that stays on its skins after fermentation for a little longer than the regular bottling, 40 days.
