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.

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)
