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

(100% sangiovese; 15% alcohol) Good full ruby-red. Initially reticent nose hints at flint and herbs, then becomes sweeter with air, displaying ripe red cherry and dark plum aromas. Dense, pure and rich on entry, with highly focused, very pure flavors of minerals, red cherry, dark plum and black pepper. Finishes very long, with bright acidity giving this the wine a slightly austere quality. A very impressive sangiovese that offers a gorgeous seamless quality and huge depth. You'll be enjoying this for another 25 years easily. (Vinifera Imports, Ronkonkoma, NY)

Spectacular wine.
by Pomatto13850712
Incredibly rich in fruit flavors and a very pleasant, lingering finish. Nice hint of oak. Cannot wait til it matures!
Delicious blockbuster!

I had this wine in Montalcino just a month ago and it is well worth the price! Its deep purple, inky color doesn't disappoint when you get it in a glass to drink as the black cherry and vanilla notes float over rich undercurrents of raspberry. Pick it up!

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.
