Gold colour. Notes of toasted almonds, honey and a bit of smoke. Slightly caramelized on the palate, fresh and polished. Excellent as a digestive. Accompanies dessert, cheese, Christmas pudding and crystalized fruits.
This wine displays an intense, brilliant red color with black hues. Its great complexity and aromatic intensity shows notes of cherries, spices, tobacco, cassis, white pepper, and cloves with touches of mint and chocolate. It has a good structure and marked acidity. Velvety and sweet tannins are given by the wood. It is voluminous and full bodied in the mouth and has a long and persistent finish.
Bruce Sanderson/Alison Napjus, “Smart Buys”, Wine Spectator Advance, 31 December 2018
A focused style, with cherry and plum flavours accented by a smoky note. Juicy and balanced, leaving hints of earth and tobacco on the long finish. (BS)
Bright ruby red in colour, with perfumes of ripe blackberry fruit, red cherry and touch of spice. On the palate it is ripe and juicy but still fine and elegant in the Selvapiana style, with a tight structure and lifted, floral finish with refreshing acidity.
Intense ruby red in colour. With rich red fruit aromas on the nose giving way to a powerful concentrated body, nicely balanced sweetness and smooth tannins, this is a delicious Ruby.
Intense tropical fruits, dry, racy luscious wine - great weight and length.
