90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2010
(a blend of 90% sangiovese and 10% petit verdot; 14.5% alcohol) Bright, deep ruby. Initially subdued nose opened with aeration to show ripe plum, tobacco and sweet spices. Soft, elegant and long, with simple but fleshy red fruit and spice flavors. A step up in depth, sweetness and intensity from the Morellino, with more volume and a serious spine that will allow it to age for at least four or five years. This builds nicely on the back end and finishes with very good flavor impact and chewy, youthful tannins.
