Sangiovese is the red grape behind some of Italy's finest wines, and it has been blended with Merlot to produce a stylish red wine full of soft, luscious cherry flavours and a hint of exotic spice.


4 Stars & 17.0/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Very dark, deep, black-hued purple ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a rounded and well-packed core of ripe dark-red berry fruit along with notes of black plums, unfolding fragrant dark-red floral elements. A little whole berry ferment jam-like lift shows, the aromatics possessing freshness and depth. Medium-bodied, the palate is moderately concentrated with up-front dark-red cherry fruit entwined with dark herb and curranty notes. The fruit is sweet and juicy, and enlivened by soft acidity, and underlined by light tannin extraction lending background structure. The flavours carry with good drive along a rounded line, leading to a soft finish of cherries and currants. This is a sweet and juicy Rubicone red with cherry and curranty flavours and light structure. Serve with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, from the Rubicone, north-east Italy, fermented to 12.5% alc."


90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"A lovely modern rendition, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows blackcurrant, blueberry compote, thyme, warm spice and almond characters. It is equally delightful on the palate, offering bright fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, elegantly framed by silky tannins. At its best: now to 2019."
