Floral scents and fleshy red plum flavors give this wine an immediate appeal that’s heightened by smooth, approachable tannins. The wine ages in large Slavonian casks, gaining its pronounced spice notes solely from San Lorenzo’s fruit rather than from any barrique influence. Flavors of black tea, bay leaf and licorice emerge, brightened by an orange acidity. — Wine & Spirits, 91 points

Red berry, leather and aromatic herb aromas slowly appear in the glass along with a subtle whiff of violet. The taut palate
is still tightly wound, offering red cherry, cranberry and star anise alongside youthfully assertive fine-grained tannins that
leave a firm finish.” — Wine Enthusiast, 92 points
