Antonio Galloni(2001 Vintage) "The 2001 Cavaliere (100% Sangiovese) is another terrific effort from Satta. Made from the estate's best fruit it sees 20 days maceration prior to being aged in barrique for 12 months. It presents the darker, brooding side of Sangiovese in its notes of scorched earth, tar, backward dark cherry fruit and well-integrated oak. Powerful and authoritative on the palate, the amply structured Cavaliere should offer rewarding drinking to age 20. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021."
Decanter(2001 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. 'Sweet' fruit, chocolate. Rich, spicy flavour and a moderate length. Drink up to 2008. (JH)
