Tasting notes

A wine of exceptional quality exclusively made from selected Merlot grapes from  Ördögárok vineyard, which we encounter only in exceptional years. The winemaker wanted to emphasize its particular quality through its name, naming it after Il Magnifico Lorenzo Medici. The grapes and the wine made from them have to satisfy such expectations as unique flavour and complexity. It is matured in new barrique barrels for 24 months. Its appearance and deep, dark colour incorporate every endowment of the year and the terroir. Its superabundant flavour and aroma tend toward milk chocolate, sour cherries steeped in rum, prunes and tobacco. Recommended with chocolate desserts, a cigar and very special moments.

After a late spring and a fickle summer came a beautiful autumn with equable weather. Never before had we handled such a lovely, elegant and balanced year of such enduring promise. The 2006 vintage commenced on September 5 amid expectations and doubts. After the late spring and variable summer all our hopes lay with the autumn. Thanks to the long-awaited dry and outstandingly warm September and October, both early and late varieties ripened nicely. This was one of those special years where high sugar and alcohol content combined with a pleasant acidity. Of of which were crowned by concentrated fruity aromas and deep colours.
