Angullong, Fossil Hill, Montepulciano, Orange, 2021
Medium garnet colour. Dark jelly bean, plum and dried fig, meaty smoke, raspberry, waxy lipstick, clove to anise herb and chocolate biscuit. Layered, firm and carrying rumbling fine tannin. Drying and taut with a flourish of juicy acidity. Fine execution of balance, maybe just a touch too firm.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
