Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 VM.
"(90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero and Colorino . . .): Saturated medium ruby-red. Superripe aromas of redcurrant, strawberry jelly, botanical herbs and mocha, with a slightly candied quality and a whiff of maple butter. Sweet, plush and broad, crammed with ripe red cherry, tea leaf and licorice flavors. This rich, fat, ripe wine finishes creamy-sweet, with melting tannins. Drinking beautifully now, but has the stuffing and acidity to last . . ." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Feb 2013
