Winemaker Notes:

Medium garnet in color, aromas of red fruits and cassis are complemented by delicate hints of licorice, smoke, and caramel. The tannins in this wine are central to the mouth feel, yet they are neither astringent nor tight...in other words, a perfect example of the Neive style. 

Pairs well with meat-based raviolis, mushroom-topped pork saltimbocca, and elegant filet mignon dishes.

Ratings and Reviews: 

96 Points #43 Top 100 of 2022 - Wine Enthusiast

*Editor's Choice* This fragrant red opens with aromas of blue flower, resin, star anise and underbrush. Full-bodied and elegantly structured, the savory palate offers ripe raspberry, cranberry and baking spice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Best After 2027

92 Points - Wine Spectator

Showing enticing aromas of black cherry, black currant, licorice, mint and tar, this red is nicely balanced and lively. Delivers dense, dusty tannins and ripe fruit that linger on the finish. Starts out supple and firms up in the end.
