RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

...a gorgeous, understated wine. Sweet tobacco, cedar, herbs, licorice and dark red cherry notes meld together in a layered, exquisite Carmignano... Dark raspberry, blueberry, spice and licorice reappear on the super- expressive finish...medium in body.

90Wine Spectator

Bright cherry, black currant, herb and mineral flavors have intensity in this bottling, exhibiting grip and structure. Shows fine length, with coffee and herb elements.
