“The Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Almost endless bouquet. The classic Caroni notes interact magnificently with fruit, wood and an exquisite sweetness, resulting in a fantastic complexity. Not only in comparison with other bottlings of the remarkable 1996 vintage, an outstanding representative of the Caroni style. Or to put it another way: A better one is yet to be found. And this journey continues in 2023...”
