A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of high class cigar tobacco intermixed with smoke, minerals, black currants, and vanilla. In the mouth, it is dense, medium to full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and overall harmony. Really kicks in on the fresh, bright finish. Perfect with game, red meats and aged cheese.

Wine SpectatorA big, juicy and voluptuous red with lots of everything. Intense aromas of berry, currant and chocolate follow through to the full-bodied palate. Loads of concentrated fruit and velvety tannins. Long, long finish. Best after 2001. 3,150 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe glorious, dark ruby/purple-colored 1995 Sammarco vino da tavola (primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with 30%-35% Sangiovese) is a rich, full-bodied, complex super-Tuscan reminiscent of a northern Graves from Pessac-Leognan. Notes of tobacco, tar, lead pencil, roasted herbs, and copious black cherries and cassis slowly emerge as the wine sits in the glass. It is full-bodied and elegant, with flavors of black cherries, cassis, and roasted minerals. Pure, rich, and structured, but notably tannic in the finish, this wine should be at its finest between 2003-2018.

Robert Parker, August 1999
