91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Dark bright red.  Black cherry, dark raspberry, licorice and graphite on the nose.  Rich, vinous and deep, with dark cherry fruit complicated and lifted by flowers and licorice.  Chewy and large-scaled but smooth and not heavy.  Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of licorice, dark chocolate, licorice and smoky minerality.  In a distinctly dark style.

Sangiovese

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...
