This is fortified (16.5%) vermouth-style wine - based on Barolo but flavoured with quinine bark, rhubarb stem and root ginger. So very particular flavours to say the least, but flavours that I adore. It pours pale garnet colour. The nose lifts off with intense cranberry-rhubarb frutiness, peppery spice, ginger and all kinds of evergreen. It is full bodied, slightly sweet, hot and intensely bitter. Real power on the palate, so you might want to pour it over ice to chill a bit, without altering the lovely flavours. Score - 94.
