Big, Bold & Red (Six Bottle Case)

£92.50

This case is pretty self-explanatory; it’s all in the title folks! If you like gutsy full on red wines then this case should be just the ticket. Despite the power, weight, intensity and concentration these wines aren’t simply big clumsy bruisers, they have balance and focus at their very core. Let’s start with the quite brilliant Amancaya 2018, this is a punchy inky and utterly gorgeous blend of Malbec and Cabernet. Next up, Gran Malbec, a opulent loveable beast with layers of ripe velvety fruit and cocoa spice. The limited edition Coleccion range provides us with a Carignan (from 115 year old vines) which has astonishing depth and power and a Petit Verdot, which oozes blueberry and tobacco soaked cassis – you don’t quite need a knife and fork with this wine but it is close! We head back to the ‘old World’ with a gold-medal winning Côte du Rhône that has bags of juicy spicy fruit in a supple frame. Last but not least, it’s Llumi Negre, a plush rounded and creamy blend of Grenache & Carignan that delivers compact black fruit and toasty spice in abundance. This case may lack subtlety, but for those who like big flavours this is heavenly.
