Very traditional herbal, truffle aromatics; beautifully developed on the palate – almost Burgundian in its mix of sweet raspberry fruit and undergrowth flavours, and with perfect supporting acidity and oakiness. Fantastic.
“The 2001 Vina Tondonia Reserva is bridled with a lovely nose of decayed red fruit, fireside hearth, a touch of mulberry and small red cherry. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp red fruits (wild strawberry and cranberry) with a sharp, vibrant, tense, tannic finish that has immense precision. There is a slight saline note lingering in the mouth after the wine has (regretfully) departed. Drink now-2030+” Neal Martin
