Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Smoky, black currant, fig, spice with loads of flavour with an incredibly silky smooth and polished finish. A complex Amarone that's ready to be enjoyed now and will age beautifully for another 10 years. Tasted June 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
From Manus Dei Du Château Sixtine, a full-bodied Châteauneuf du Pape with a traditional blend of Rhone Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre and Cinsault grapes. You can sniff this one all day long and still find something new; this wine is bursting with layers of black fruit, fig, plum and sweet smoky spice and a long mocha raspberry finish. Well-structured with good acidity and firm tannins, you can cellar this one for at five years and it will still be at its best. - Community Wine Reviews
