Review and Tasting


Sampled on 10/09/2013

Appearance:

(sample bottle No. 14/0179) Clear, crimson red.

Aroma:

Stewed vegetables, raw rhubarb, cranberry-like red berry fruit, raw pastry dough, earthy and barky, Christmassy herbal spice and floral geranium.

Taste:

Earthy, bittersweet, lightly syrupy raspberry fruit, bark and rooty bitterness. Very fruity compared to Campari and with equal or even greater complexity.

Aftertaste:

Moderately bitter, tart fruity finish with lingering spice, berry fruit and bitter barky vegetal notes.

Overall:

Best described as an English fruit cup crossed with an Italian bitter red aperitivo. Dilute with ginger beer or lemonade on a sunny afternoon then finish the bottle making Negroni’s in the evening. Also works well served 1:3 with sparkling wine (as recommended by its makers). Our only criticism is the low alc./vol..
