Individual judges’ scores: Andrea Briccarello 16.5 Stephen Brook 17.5 Ian D’Agata 17.5
Perfumed, complex nose of red cherries, quinine, cinnamon, nutmeg and stones. Broad, generous, supple and luxurious on the palate, with stylish acidity to balance. The oak gives polish as well as a vanilla sheen, and the acidity keeps things nicely refreshing.
