4.5 STARS 90/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Another stunning import from Steve Bennet MW of Mucho Gusto. From the Puglia region in Southern Italy, this is a rich, intense wine with spicy, ripe fruit flavours. The premium, reverse taper bottle is a sign that there is something special going on here and there's no doubt that there is. Climb on in.
The winery writes "Ruby intense red colour with intense spicy hints and touch of ripe fruits. The taste is harmonious, persistent and rounded."
Sam Kim writes "Sweetly fruited and spicy at the same time, the wine shows bitter cherry, smoky bacon, thyme and toasted almond notes combined with succulent palate delivering plump mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins. Flavoursome and lingering with an elegant savoury finish."
