Region: Other Italy
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2009
($28) Deep ruby with a hint of garnet at the rim. Smoky black cherry and quinine aromas share some of the slightly raisiny, overripe quality of the basic bottling. Then juicy in the mouth, with good vivacity to the complex black cherry, roasted plum and inky flavors; this is a good deal more serious than the basic Montepulciano if not quite as fleshy. Finishes complex and long, with chewy, sweet tannins.
