A brighter, fresher style of Nero d'Avola here, not a trace of rusticity - lots of juicy cherry and blackberry fruit. Opens with an appealing crunch of fresh berries, then softens to quite a smooth, creamy texture. Unoaked, but with lots of flavour and depth - an attractive chewy texture, but not a heavyweight. Very Mediterranean in style.

The Nimbus Russus is an intense ruby – red colour with purple highlights. On the nose, the fruit expression is impressive with berries, dogwoods, plums and liquorice combined with notes of eucalyptus, black olives and intense black pepper. On the palate, there is an impressive spicy taste of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg which are complemented by earthy notes of fresh soil, and hints of dark chocolate. Velvety rounded tannins due to the 12 months ageing in old oak barrels. Potential age up to 10 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique ageing capacity.
2015 was a great vintage in this area of the Rhone! This Chateauneuf du Pape look alike is beautifully concentrated, but perfectly balanced black fruit and sweet spice.
