95 Points Dark and impenetrable, Montepulciano takes a walk on the wilder, deeper, more full-bodied side. It’s a different interpretation to what we are generally seeing as the Australian norm, a more serious expression with ageing potential in mind. A mass of blackberries, cassis, bramble, spice and chocolate assemble on the bouquet. It’s got weight and richness in fruit on the palate, big and almost imposing, loaded in chocolate, pan forte and blackstrap liquorice. Oak is well positioned. Tannins are firm and just a little drying, taking nothing away from the powerful force of the wine. Jeni Port, Winepilot, February 2024
92 Points Famous Italian variety that works so well in McLaren Vale. The aroma is an exotic combination of satsuma plum and dark cherry with a subtle floral note. The palate has all those black cherry and dark plummy characters delivered in a plush generous form. A dry savoury thread of tannin and acid gives it that slightly angular detail.
