93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(Cannubi and Le Rocche normally are the two largest components of this wine, which also includes San Lorenzo and Rue; from fruit mostly harvested in mid-September): Medium red. Expressive, delicate perfume of cherry, redcurrant and mint. Supple and aromatic in the mouth, with sexy flavors of red berries, flowers, truffle and underbrush. Finishes broad but juicy, with substantial sweet tannins and terrific length. This fruit had 30 to 40 days of skin contact. There's 14.9% alcohol here but I never would have guessed it. Hail in May in Cannubi cut the size of the crop.
