£30-£39 Asset, Corks Out, Field & Fawcett, Highbury Vintners, Noel Young Set up by Agricola San Felice in 1980, and located on the southwestern edges of the appellation, this 65ha estate devotes 20ha to its vineyards. The terroir is a mix of soils: calcareous, clay and alluvial, creating a balance of power, softness and elegance. The wine is aged for three years in Slavonian oak casks and 500-litre tonneaux.
BB Complex, cigar-box aromas accompanied by notes of morello cherries, wet stones and Mediterranean herbs. Fairly developed palate of sweet black fruit ferried by big, firm tannins to a long, clean finish.
MG Warm and edgy, charred spice and menthol nose, followed by a full, ripe, juicy palate and concentrated black pepper and raspberry fruit.
SH An immediately appealing, enticing nose of cherry fruit and sweet spice character. Love the balance and harmony here, even if it is a slightly lighter style overall.
