This wine is produced with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes coming from the Antinori vineyards in Tuscany. The wine is refined for 12 months in oak casks followed by further 8 months in the bottle prior to release. Intense ruby red colour, aromas of red berry fruit and oak. Complex and stylish with well-balanced, silky tannins and rich in extract.
|2008: 90 Points - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A red with depth and richness, this boasts black cherry, blackberry and tobacco notes. Well-proportioned, yet requires some time to absorb its tannins. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah."
