(2009 Vintage) The truly impressive structure of this Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blend is enhanced by a lengthy sojourn in barriques of diverse oak types. Its intense bouquet expresses all the complexity of its components - hints of cocoa, roasted almonds and berries, with plenty of fruit still. Depth, dimension and persistence make this wine a perfect match for important creative dishes.
Wine Spectator(2007 Vintage) "Very silky and floral, this red reminds me of Burgundy with its bilberry, violet and raspberry aromas and flavors. The grainy tan nins show the other side to this wine, which will require time for the two components to balance. Ends with a long, intense, fruit filled finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2027"
Wine & Spirits(2005 Vintage) Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. Rustic tannins add grip to this spicy, hefty red. For a meat-filled calzone.
