89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008

Good deep red. Redcurrant, fresh raspberry, roasted coffee and smoke on the nose. At once sweet and firm-edged, with spicy red berry and leather flavors complicated by licorice and gingerbread and framed by juicy acidity. Finishes with a solid tannic spine and very good clarity of flavor-plenty ripe but in need of some patience. (Terlato Wines International, Lake Bluff, IL)

Try 2001 if you can get it out there !!!

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
