Winemaker's Notes

Complex, compelling, beautifully plummy and polished, with blockbuster structure complemented by the estate's hallmark elegance; unfolding layer after layer of goudron, berry fruit, tobacco, violets, vanilla.

Decant beforehand & pair with structured, rich, important dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of meat, fresh porcini and raisin. Full-bodied, with a velvety texture and a long, caressing finish. With air, this delivers loads of super-ripe fruit and opulent, decadent character. Spice rack.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now through 2011. 4,400 cases made. "
95 Points

"Intense dark garnet. An enticing medley of aromas includes sweet pipe tobacco, anise, white pepper and mint. Ripe plum and pure cherry flavors are enveloped by mouthcoating gauzy tannins, with a note of licorice adding complexity to the substantial finish. This glossy, racy wine is a compelling example of Brunello."

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
