Intense ruby-red in color with garnet highlights, Corbaia offers jammy aromas of black currant, cherry and cassis backed by hints of tobacco, chocolate and coffee. On the palate, Corbaia is supple and layered with rich texture and well-integrated tannins. The perfect choice for wild boar, game, steaks and roast beef.
"The 2007 Corbaia is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak. It is once again a very serious wine. The floral, expressive aromatics of Sangiovese are backed up by the tannic heft and sheer richness of the Cabernet. This is a big, yet sensual, wine that will require considerable patience for the tannins to soften, despite the early appeal of the vintage elsewhere. The sheer purity and depth of the fruit are breathtaking in this stunning Tuscan red. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027."
The Wine Advocate
"Corbaia is a super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon that opens with intensity and bright fruit flavors. It boasts a soft, silky feel with a firm tannic bite followed by cassis, earth and wild mushroom. Very nice."
"A very fruity and structured red, showing currant and berry notes, with hints of new wood. Needs to come together in the bottle, but shows excellent tannin backbone and fruit. Best after 2011. 1,000 cases made."
