From an all-female winery, this riserva opens with a deep garnet color. Black espresso bean, vanilla pod, toasted chestnut and dark, brooding fruit characterize the bouquet. It is bright and crisp in the mouth, with a sharply defined edge and polished tannins.

Modern, concentrated and packed with plump fruit, black pepper highlights, vanilla and chewy meatiness. One panelist likened it to Californian Syrah.

Saturated to the max, with a violet/ruby tint that shows no breaks. If it looks like an extracted bruiser, it is. The tannins are big and precise, however, they aren’t aggressive or mean.

A unique treat from a winery managed by women only. It offers a delicate nose with dried oregano, floral notes, cedar wood, mint candy and dark cherries. Lively and intense in the mouth and tightly framed by a compact structure and soft wood tones. Beautiful, tingly sensation in the mouth that lasts a very long time.

It shows power and determination in the mouth with velvety tannins, softly extracted fruit and bright cherry notes accented with hints of ginger and crushed herb. The bouquet is less powerful but it works vey nicely considering the overall momentum of this beautiful wine.
