Created for more than 5 generations ago and in the winery we have numerous old oak barrels, where the wines are made respecting tradition and modern know-how.
The nose is smooth and creamy with blue fruit, spice cookie, cherries and a bit of barnyard. The palate is soft and full showing cherry cough syrup and clove with vibrant acidity and a long finish
This wine was gorgeous with rich blackberry fruit, allspice and black strap molasses on the nose. On the palate, I found black currant, spicy clove, and dark chocolate with licorice on the long finish. If anything, the only thing that hurt this wine was a perceptible amount of alcohol on both the nose and palate.
Medium plus body, deep color, pleasant grapey fruit, some heat and drying oak on finish. An excellent value @ $14 (Costco).
Nice and beautifull dark gigondas.
