Deep, black cherry in colour. Aromas of red fruit with oaky toffee hints from the ageing in French barrels give way to a sweet and fruity wine on the palate. With elements of ripe fruits and liquorice, this wine has a pleasant and soft finish.

    Ещё очень молодое и танинное, конечно.
    Но вино уже сейчас развивается в бокале от сливы до вишни, танины капельку смягчаются.
    Добротная РДД

    Still very young and tannic, of course.

    Nice young Pruno - well it hits the market too young and only with 1-3 months in bottle aging so store it yourself for 12-24 month and you have a 4 Star wine at a low price 8-10 eur. Well made Tempranillo blend lots of tannins but a little sharp finish that will get round and soft with some aging

    Have we ever had a blah RdD? Don’t think so! A RdD always seems to be a bottle of yum. And it paired very well with our Prime Rib.

    Hint of dark berries and sweet tobacco on the nose. Plum, mulberry, black raspberry and blueberry on the palate with notes of oak, tobacco and earth. Moderate acidity and grippy tannins. 3.8 ✨

    Price wise, this is surprisingly good. The nose has slight notes that I’m not a fan of which gives away the sulfites in the wine but after it opens it has surprisingly nice nose and palate
