Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby red color with complex scents of flowers, blackberry and plum, with notes of leather, clove and vanilla. Powerful with a long, assured finish. The ultimate expression of our terroir

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby. Aromas of roasted plum, dark berries, fresh herbs and mocha. Suave on entry, then fresh and energetic in the middle palate, with noteworthy intensity to the black cherry, herbal and licorice flavors. Finishes with a hint of sexy vanillin oak and a lovely creamy texture."
92 Points

"The estate's single-vineyard 2006 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is sweet, round and harmonious. The wine possesses lovely depth and volume in a full-bodied yet approachable style. Tar, smoke, licorice and earthiness linger on the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. "
91 Points

"Offers sweet berry notes, with hints of licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, with bright acidity and a berry and citrus fruit aftertaste. Clean and crisp. A chewy style, with a lot of new wood. Best after 2010. 2,000 cases made."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs.
