Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The hot growing season has given the 2003 Veneroso an additional level of weight and ripeness. Super-ripe dark fruit, toasted oak, scorched earth, leather, licorices and spices all emerge from this supple, full-bodied wine. The tannins are well-integrated and the wine offers gorgeous balance, something that was very hard to come by in this vintage.

92 Points

"Medium-deep saturated ruby. Multifaceted nose offers blackberry, dark chocolate and coffee along with vanilla and pepper and an elegant mineral quality. Suave and stylish, with a lush texture, impressive volume and deep flavors of dark fruits and chocolate. Finishes long, complex and minerally, with fine tannins. The fossil- and chalk-rich soils of the estate add real energy to the red berry and floral elements."
