Sku: 1724016*

Tasting notes
Deep ruby and garnet highlights. Ripe summer blackberry and spices on the nose, with a hint of earthy fragrances underneath. Full and velvety on the palate with a finely-grained tannin structure and long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Feb 2012)
The 2008 Fumin is a striking wine laced with violets, tar, smoke and sweet dark cherries, all of which come together in a weightless, feminine style that is incredibly appealing. This highly unique, compelling red possesses gorgeous inner perfume and a silky, totally refined finish, both of which contribute to the wine’s fabulous overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

Other text

The grape is characterised by a complex color/flavour profile. Fumin is today considered a key grape in the reintroduction of traditional regional grapes into the winemaking process.

Food pairing
