Reviews:

The nose contained notes of rhubarb and spring floral bouquets intertwining with hints of dark cherry, spice and sandalwood. The impressively structured palate is formed by a backbone of black and red berry compote wrapped around orange flavoured dark chocolate and savoury notes of forest floor that I suspect will soften over time. The long finish is complex and layered with notes of slate, dried herbs and dark earth transporting you to the steep slopes of Bussia. A truly spectacular effort from the Fenocchio estate.
