Tasting Notes from the Wine Advocate, “The 2017 Domus Aurea is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot that shows the textbook minty and stony character from the place. It fermented in a very traditional way with indigenous yeasts and matured in French barriques, mostly new, for 16 to 18 months. The wine is ripe and powerful, to the point that the oak seems to be absorbed almost immediately. This feels a bit riper when tasted next to the 2018. It’s expressive and open with a more extrovert personality. It’s full-bodied, juicy and powerful and with very tasty and spicy flavors.” WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS
