Winemaker's Notes

Toscana Bere is a brilliant red color. Aromas of red-berried fruit, and violets are present. On the palate there is excellent balance, freshness and pleasantness that accompany notes of soft fruit, cherry, and hints of violet. Ideal with pasta and pizza, it is recommended as an everyday wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Features blueberry and cherry aromas, with hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied and chewy, this is a little hollow midpalate. Should fill in with age."
87 Points

"The 2008 Bere, a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, is classy and elegant from start to finish. Perfumed red berries flow through to a long, clean finish. In 2008 there is a little less density than is normally the case, but this is just about as good a wine as was made in Tuscany in this price range."
