€ 534,31 (inkl. MwSt.)
Grown on white volcanic ash soil, the deep garnet-purple colored 2014 Thorevilos Proprietary Red has a very meaty nose with charcuterie, beef drippings, truffles and wood smoke over spice cake, blackberry tart, warm blackcurrants, earth and anise plus a waft of cedar chest. The palate is very firm, grainy, lively and taut with loads of earthy/savory layers and great length.
Winespectator / James Suckling (99)
A generous and almost flamboyant red with blackberries, blueberries, flowers, violets, black olives and hints of stones on the nose. Similar character on the palate. Full-bodied, layered and very, very velvety-textured from the ripe tannins. Impressive.
