Natalie's Score: 90/100

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!

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!
