96Vinous / IWC

Sophisticated and medium in body...possesses striking aromatic depth and nuance to match its decidedly midweight personality. Layers of bright, red-toned fruit, blood orange and cinnamon add to the wine's decidedly exotic personality.

94+ John Gilman

...wafting from the glass in a complex blend of cassis, sweet dark berries, cigar wrapper, a beautiful base of soil tones, a touch of road tar, cedary oak and a topnote of gentle botanicals. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied...with a fine core of black fruit, lovely soil signature and grip, ripe, buried tannins and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish.

93Wine Spectator

...spicy and dense, with black currant, black cherry and toast aromas and flavors. The structure is well-integrated, resulting in fine balance and a long, harmonious finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...beautifully executed wine...bouquet shows decisive Cabernet-adjacent aromas of super dense blackberry with black olive and charred rosemary twig...delivers immediate power and intensity with excellent focus and sharpness.

17.5Jancis Robinson

...fine, perfumed nose... Perfectly integrated... Elegant, juicy fruit on the palate that is mouth-filling. Super fine 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.
