Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/09/2013
(sample bottle No. 14/0179) Clear, crimson red.
Stewed vegetables, raw rhubarb, cranberry-like red berry fruit, raw pastry dough, earthy and barky, Christmassy herbal spice and floral geranium.
Earthy, bittersweet, lightly syrupy raspberry fruit, bark and rooty bitterness. Very fruity compared to Campari and with equal or even greater complexity.
Moderately bitter, tart fruity finish with lingering spice, berry fruit and bitter barky vegetal notes.
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..
