Winemaker Notes

Dense ruby-purple color. Sweet nose of high class cigar tobacco intermixed with smoke, minerals, black currants, and vanilla. Dense, medium-to full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and overall harmony.

Excellent with game, red meats and aged cheeses

JS 97
James Suckling
Wow. The nose to this wine is truly wonderful with currant, berry, orange peel and minerals. Full body, firm, chewy tannins and an intense, beautiful finish. It goes on for minutes. So complex. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese. Better in 2017.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Sammarco Vino da Tavola is based on Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Sangiovese and Merlot. The 2010 vintage is still very closed and will require ten years or more to blossom. What you get at this young stage in the wine’s life are tightly wound tones of bramble, wild berry, light spice, bacon fat and loads of vibrant medicinal herb. The mouthfeel shows a great degree of finesse and silkiness that will surely evolve in time to embrace an even finer texture. Give it time.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A broad, concentrated red, this is packed with black cherry and black currant flavors, accented by oak spice, tar and resin notes. Sweet and fruity up front, burly on the finish. Gains elegance with aeration. Best from 2018 through 2028.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Brighter and more structured than the 2009 Sammarco, this ’10 is driven by firm tannins and a streak of graphite right now. Subtle red fruits tinged with tarragon and spices hint at the complexity to come, with a vitality and concentration that indicates it will improve with time. Give it several years in the cellar, or decant it a few hours before dinner, and serve with a rare steak drizzled with olive oil.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
