|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Medium-bodied Sangiovese and Cab blend with cherry, vanilla and cedar on nose and palate.
Tasted Jan. 2017
|90 POINTS, RICK VANSICKLE, WINE IN NIAGARA, March 2016|
The blend is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and rest Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose shows intense crushed raspberries, cherry and subtle cassis, spice box, cedar and toasted vanilla. It’s smooth and perfectly mature on the palate with earthy red fruits, will integrated spice and perfect balance.
|90 POINTS, WINE ALIGN, MICHAEL GODEL, MAR 2016|
Very pretty Tuscan red, of black fruits felt first and a warming from tannin into alcohol. This is an exciting and plush amalgamation with three quarters Sangiovese leading equal compliments from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. There is some additional sweetness that could be scaled back a touch to allow for the beefy components to take a fitter, bitter and more demanding stand. Quite serious wine for the money. Chalky grain at the end indicates two years are needed to melt away. Drink 2018-2022.
|90 POINTS WINE ALIGN, STEVE THURLOW, MARCH 2016|
Juicy well balanced fairly complex red with a firm tannin finish. The nose shows red and black berry fruit with earthy tones and some nice well integrated oak. The palate is midweight and firm with very good length. Classic reserva style Tusacn red. Try with a steak. Best 2018 to 2022.
|4.5 Stars out 5 (Exceptional Value) WINE CURRENT FEB 1, 2017|
Grapes for this fruit-forward blend were sourced from 70% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Lively aromas of exotic spice, cedar and dark cherry/berry fruit leap from the glass. It coats the palate with a gusher of black berry and dark juicy cherry adorned with black plum and piquant spice. It’s medium-full bodied with a supple, fine-grained tannin underpinning and excellent, tangy acidity. Aerate/decant for three hours. It finishes with replays—delightful, distinctive, delicious. What’s not to like? (Vic Harradine)
|From Tuscany, La Torre Guinzano San Gimignano (2011) has an odd chocolate charred note on the nose with a metallic bitter finish. Lots of tannins and acid on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews|
