Very deep ruby red with violet reflections. The intense aroma and flavours of plum, cherry, rosemary, vanilla and peppery spice are confirmed by a well balanced, full finish. This indigenous grape variety is DNA acknowledged as the fore-father of California’s Zinfandel. Matane Primitivo pairs extremely well with red meat, duck, game, smoked fish and hard cheeses.
97% Sangiovese, 3% Canaiolo
Aged 15-18 months in 50’hl Slovenian oak casks with a minimum of 6 months bottle maturity prior to release. ‘Croce’ means cross, from an ancient crucifix standing in the Radda-in-Chianti vineyard. 92/100 Robert Parker.
100% Tempranillo, 18 months in French oak casks of 1 or 2 years old and
3 extra months in Allier French oak vats. Intense red garnet, complex, full of elegant aromas of black fruits and spices, coffee and cacao, coming from an extraordinary vintage. Silky and fleshy. A classic Rioja, perfect balance of fruit, structure and elegance.
90/100 Robert Parker, 91/100 International Wine Review
