Reviews and Ratings

Drew rated this wine as 94/100
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Priya: Smoky, musty, mouldy…I must be in an old basement. Some fruit here for sure but not enough to win me over. I still like them bold and beautiful like the soap opera! No plain janes for me when it comes to wine! 82 pts

Alex: Bit of dustiness here for sure but come on Priya this here’s no plain jane! Bountiful nose of leather, flowers, tobacco leaf, warm earth and dusty cherries – Very classic Tuscan nose! Shows hints of blueberry indicating ripeness, some dried bayleaf - rich but balanced palate full of Tuscany, very authentic and well-crafted. A great charcuterie wine, and excellent on its own as well. Well done and well priced. 91 pts
This big Italian red wine is a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. - Community Wine Reviews
