92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2010

Good medium-deep red. Red cherry, redcurrant, licorice and mint aromas are lifted by a violet element on the flamboyant nose. The floral quality carries through on the palate, which offers compelling inner-mouth perfume to its flavors of sour red cherry, licorice and sweet spices. A suave sangiovese with smooth tannins and subtle, spicy length, but turns slightly austere at the back owing to strong but harmonious acids. One of the best wines of the vintage.

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
