95James Suckling

...sweet berries, dried flowers and intense fresh mint. Full bodied, with beautiful fruit and black pepper character. Intense finish. A wonderfully aromatic and balanced red.

95John Gilman

...bouquet is pure and very refined...wafting from the glass in a mix of black cherries, sweet cassis, cigar wrapper, a beautiful base of soil, Tuscan herb tones, espresso, cedar and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with lovely delineation and complexity, a superb core of black fruit, lovely soil undertow, ripe, fine-grained tannins and a long, very elegant finish.

92Vinous / IWC

Dark red fruit, grilled herbs, espresso and spices are supported by finessed, silky tannins...shows excellent length and persistence in an understated style...

90Wine Spectator

Fresh and focused, displaying black currant and blackberry aromas and flavors. Light and elegant, yet there's no shortage of structure, with a firm mineral finish.

17.5+ Jancis Robinson

Truly noble, cool nose of violets, blueberry, blackberry and graphite...fills the mouth with fine fruit aromas. Fantastic balance of zesty, tangy fruit with just a hint of creamy oak on the finish. Lots of perfectly built, ripe tannins...


Italy, Tuscany

Tuscany, or Toscana in Italian, is Italy’s best-known wine region and its most diverse. Historically Sangiovese was the primary grape grown in Tuscany and Chianti was considered the purest expression of Sangiovese. Sangiovese and its many clones are still important, and they are the grapes used for the Tuscan appellations of Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano, Chianti, Chianti Classico and Carmignano. But in the last 50 years innovative producers, many of them in southwestern Tuscany in the area called Maremma, have also planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The tradition defying producers have blended those varietals with Sangiovese to produce dazzling wines that do not conform to Italy’s appellation regulations. Such wines are called Super Tuscans and cannot be labeled with either of Italy’s highest level quality designations, which are in order of status Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantia, (DOCG), and Denominazione di Origine Controllata, (DOC). (This has not at all hindered the demand for Super Tuscans, some of which are consistently among the world’s most admired and well-reviewed wines.) Tuscany has six DOCG appellations and thirty-four DOCs. Though famous for its red wines, Tuscany also produces whites made primarily from Trebbiano and Vernaccia. There are also many Tuscan Indicazione Geographica Tipica (IGT) wines that are often an innovative blend of traditional and non-traditional grapes. This relatively new appellation status was started in 1992 as an attempt to give an official classification to Italy’s many newer blends that do fit the strict requirements of DOC and DOCG classifications. IGT wines may use the name of the region and varietal on their label or in their name.
