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.

The long, hot summer of 2011 produced wines of outstanding quality. Neither did the spring hailstorms cause significant damage. The hot summer days were made bearable with refreshing showers and this could be seen in the volume of the crop. A lovely year producing quality wines.
