Richard Maby has two passions in life, wine and opera. To reflect these twin loves, his wines are named to honour opera. This is one of his Grand Cuvéés, and as the name Nessun Dorma suggests, you will fall in love at first taste.

The grapes are from organic vineyards in the Rhône valley village of Lirac, which shares similar terroir to its better known sibling Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from the estate’s finest vineyards, all matured in barrels for twelve months.

Nessun Dorma reveals the depth and elegance of the terroir, with astonishing aromatic complexity. Concentrated colour with ruby red highlights. A seductive nose with exceptional aromatic purity. A concerto of red and black fruit, sweet spices, liquorice and flowers. The full-bodied, rich and fleshy expression on the palate with an incredible aromatic range is just superb.

This will happily keep in your cellar for up to 15 years.

Try this with a roast rib of beef or a slow roast shoulder of lamb.
