(From 2013 Vintage) This wine has pronounced flavors of black forest fruits, under layered by plums and tobacco. The Upper Galilee Merlot grapes provide the wine with a complexity which combines spicy aromas of Mediterranean herbs in a velvety, elegant body typical to the variety.
(From 2000 Vintage) Ruby red color deep and intense; aromas of plum jam, and fresh hints of cherries, blackberries, raspberries are also well present. This wine has a good structure with the soft tannins characteristic of this vintage. A wine that is well-balanced and highly enjoyable.
Wine Spectator"A wonderful Brunello boasting mineral, violet, berry and cherry character and a hint of new oak. Full-bodied and powerful, adding loads of tannins and a very long finish. One to cellar for a long time; try in 1999. Better than previously reviewed."
