From Bodega Numanthia, the 2009 Termanthia is entirely hand crafted and aged in French oak barrels. A brilliant deep purple in color, this elegant Tuscan red offers an incredibly layered and sophisticated bouquet of berry fruit, floral notes and hints of black pepper, almonds, spice, vanilla and truffles on the nose. On the palate, great complexity with concentrated fruit, floral, chocolate and spice character with a velvety mouthfeel, silky tannins and outstanding structure and balance with a long finish.
“The 2009 Termanthia has a fragrant bouquet of dark berries, mulberry, juniper and lavender, with vanilla-tinged notes emanating from the oak. The palate is full-bodied with firm but quite fine tannins, plus a fine sense of symmetry. It is very sweet with plenty of candied orange peel and even a hint of molasses towards the succulent, fleshy, slightly spicy finish. This is sleek and sensual and deserves five years, perhaps more, in the cellar.” -Wine Advocate (95 Points)
“This powerful red shows structure and grace, with massive tannins supporting ripe fruit braced by lively acidity and plenty of oak. Plum, cassis, black pepper, anise and mineral notes mingle in a sleek, firm texture. A big wine in the modern style.” -Wine Spectator (94 Points)
