Details:

SP 68 Rosso is slightly turbid purple/red in the glass showing aromas of wild cherries, plum and mulberry with just a touch of raspberry lift. There are hints of flowers, leather, smoke, spice and herbs with wafts of liquorice, earth and mandarin rind.  

In the mouth the initial attack of fruit is awash with wild cherry sheathed in tobacco leaf with supporting fruit flavours of dark plum and blackberry. A very pretty wine on the palate with violet-like floral flicks across the leather and spice backdrop with hints of roasted meats, citrus rind and scattered herbs. It’s delicious and lively with a nice, lingering finish set upon a plinth of ripe, fine grained gravelly tannins. Super drinking…it doesn’t mind a bit of chilling down also which is a godsend at this time of the year…a bit of time in the fridge is ideal…it tightens up a little and is a joy to drink.
