Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Bright ruby in colour with perfumes characteristic of top quality Corvina - bitter cherries and a twist of raspberry.
On the palate it has bright, lively fruit with good intensity of ripe, summer berries offset by a hint of liquorice from the Syrah.
Long and elegant on the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed now or carefully stored for up to 6 years.
