Tasting notes

The 2012 Compendium is distinctive, with black currant, Italian plum aromas and flavours up front, but also displays blackberry, wild herb and star anise notes. Elegant and concentrated, this wine presents a core of fruit accented by youthful tannins that will soften in the short term.
