90 Points | International Wine Cellar , October 2009

Bright, dark red. Enticing aromas of violet, red cherry, licorice, and sp icy oak. Full and smooth on entry, with firm acids framing the red fruit, spice and floral flavors. Very clean and dry but still a little youthfully austere and unyielding in the mouth. Finishes juicy and firm, with a sappy, tangy quality and good thrust to its red berry flavors. This is likely to develop further sweetness and fleshiness with another six months of bottle aging. Owner Francesco Leanza labels his Rosso with a vineyard indication, something that tells you how seriously he takes this wine. Salicutti, along with Pian dell'Orino and Stella di Campalto, is one of the three estates to have left the Consorzio after last year's scandal. They have founded Sangiovese Per Amico, an association they feel will allow them to champion the virtues of sangiovese in the manner they feel most correct. (Winebow Inc., New York, NY)
