  1. Alesio

    Very drinkable, full bodied, fairly robust red. Stays on the pallet well, deep cherry and blackcurrant. I found it went very well with strong cheese.

  2. Rosie

    Great discovery – we were very pleasantly surprised by this smooth, delicious wine. And a quick delivery too. Absolutely fantastic and would highly recommend it.
