91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
Deep red. Musky strawberry and spices dominate the nose. Lush, sweet and large-scaled; enters the mouth with terrific volume and an almost soft impression but then turns much firmer and juicier toward the back, with sound acidity making itself felt. Really coats the palate on the aftertaste, finishing seamless, a bit warm and very long. Incidentally, Manzone does a fairly long fermentation with a lot of pumpovers in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks; he does not use rotofermenters. (Marc de Grazia; numerous importers, including Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY; Robert Houde Wines, Bensenville, IL; and Estate Wines Ltd., San Rafael, CA)
