Expert Reviews

87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010

($12; 85% sangiovese, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 5% merlot; 12.5% alcohol) Bright red. Floral nuances of rose and violet complement redcurrant on the nose, with an element of sweet spices emerging with aeration. Medium-bodied, straightforward and bright, with delicately spicy red berry flavors and polished tannins. This should be enjoyed over the next three or four years. A joint venture between importer Neil Empson and Franco Bernabei, one of Italy 's best winemakers.

Let aerate in decanter 30 minutes. Nice and smooth. Great value at price I paid: $11.79 winemaker's notes: #61 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009 The blend, albeit varying slightly depending on vintage conditions, is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The best selections are blended and aged 1 year in oak (80% in Slavonian barrels, 20% in barrique) + at least 6 months in the bottle, achieving a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and flexible yet sturdy backbone. Dark ruby in color, its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate – round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity and extremely versatile with any fare from pasta or risotto, to meat, fowl and cheese. Moreover, the Empsons' judicious pricing policy makes it "consistently one of Italy's better values". Food-friendly, pocket-friendly, all-around simpatico. critical acclaim: "Bright plum, dried cherry and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and refined berry and cherry flavors. Drink now." 90 Points Wine Spectator
