Critics Scores

WINE SPECTATOR

Wine Spectator

A powerful version, with a coating of toasty, vanilla-accented oak wrapped around blackberry and black plum flavors. Shows a hint of tar, and the tannins are assertive now, yet this stays vibrant and long. Better with air, but still a unique style. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2033.

James Suckling

A ripe and juicy super Tuscan with lots of aromas of ripe berries, chocolate, nutmeg and spices, which follow through to a full body. Round, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Rich and layered with beautiful fruit and intensity. Subtlety lavish. Drink or hold.

WINE ENTHUSIAST

Wine Enthusiast

Made with Sangiovese and Merlot, this vibrant red offers aromas of fragrant blue flower, dark-skinned berry, cedar and underbrush. The elegant juicy palate delivers fleshy black cherry, raspberry jam, espresso and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2020–2028.

TASTING PANEL

Tasting Panel

The winery’s “icon” wine, it blends Sangiovese and Merlot and ages 24 months in hand-split oak barriques. Richly intense and dense with berry notes and tangy spice; luscious, bright, and elegant with a lengthy fnish.
