Reviews and Ratings

Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Beautiful bouquet of smoke, leather and earth with hints of licorish and vanilla. Tastes of blackberry, toasty vanilla. Requires a good long decanting. Pair with steak and asparagus.

(Tasted January 2017)
This Italian red wine is mostly Sangiovese grapes with some Merlot in the blend. Lots of black fruit on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

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