"This superb wine is bursting from the glass with inviting aromas of cherries, plums and warm spices. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and sapid, with terrific depth and concentration, its lavish core of juicy fruit complemented by considerable savory nuance—proof, if any were needed, that Lapalu is one of the finest exponents of this underrated appellation.
