97 Points, James Suckling: "The beauty and polish to this is very impressive on the nose and the palate. Blackberry, blueberry, and sandalwood character. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and an elegant finish. So crafted and fine. Drink in 2020." 07/16
Cellar Selection. Made with Sangiovese and Merlot, this vibrant red offers aromas of mature black-skinned berry, exotic spice, purple flower, coconut and a balsamic note. The full-bodied palate has weight and finesse, delivering dried black cherry, raspberry, espresso and star anise alongside a backbone of bright acidity and firm, velvety tannins. Hold a few more years to let this fully come together. Drink 2019-2028.
A sheen of resinous oak casts an accent over the black cherry and plum fruit in this powerful, chewy red. All the components are in the right place. Needs a little more time. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2024. 1,400 cases imported.
