What we say:
Look out people here come the big guns! First off this bottle weighs the same as about 3 normal bottles so use both hands please, we don’t want you dropping this. You will be more annoyed that you just lost a great wine over the fact you broke your toe!
This wine is a big full bodied, rich and sensational Italian stallion. Sweet with black fruits like black cherry, blackcurrant and prunes. You then get the oak and leathery tobacco flavours all wrapped up with spices like cinnamon and star anise. When you take that first sip you get that warming feeling only possible from a great red wine.
If you ever wanted a wine on a cold winter night to relax with in front of the fire with then this is it. Ok it’s not cheap but when was anything that is truly amazing cheap.
