2016 was one of the standout vintages from both a quantity and quality point of view. The harvest was lavish with good maturity with the wines showing a lot of fruit and body with good ageing potential. The Bardos Reserva is a bold Ribera del Duero that is well-structured yet smooth, with an intense cherry red colour with shades of violet and purple tinges. On the nose there is a great aromatic intensity with mature dark fruits, chocolate, spices and smoky aromas. The well-structured palate is very harmonious and fleshy, finishing with mature tannins and finely balanced acidity.

A classic Amarone della Valpolicella, the Terre di San Zeno from Corteforte is a wonderfully decadent and sophisticated wine.

The wine is then bottled and released following an additional 12 month period in bottle. Although approachable when released, this tremendous Amarone will continue to develop in bottle for a good decade following release.
