A fascinating red that features lovely, bright aromas of cherries, raspberries and subtle oak. Full-bodied and supple yet it tastes mature already. Love that old leather and cigar box nuance. Phenomenal value!

Reviews and Ratings

Guy Delorme rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a fantastic Super Tuscan at an affordable price. The Sangiovese brings in the cherries, the Cabernet and Merlot bring the blackcurrant, ripe raspberries and boysenberries, a touch of graphite is also subbtle and brings in the terroir and as a bonus in retro-olfaction, a touch of balsamic.
What a great wine for that price, a chance for everybody to taste what a Super Tuscan can taste like.
By far one of my favourite wine in that price range.
2007 is as great.
As Nathalie mentionned a phenomenal value!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
