Wine Spectator 90 WS TOP 100 2014 Rank 74 "The up-front mulberry and plum fruit is ripe and fleshy in this balanced red, with polished tannins. Notes of licorice string, graphite, tarry smoke and grilled mushroom push through midpalate and on the finish. Drink now through 2021." Natalie MacLean
"Made from 100% Sangiovese grown in the Ramitello and Martarosa zones of production and hand-harvested in October. The wine is aged in stainless steel and large oak barrels for six months in order to achieve greater smoothness and softness while preserving the supple fruity flavors of Sangiovese.
Wine Spectator 88" Balanced, with grippy tannins and flavors of black currant, blackberry, fresh rosemary, cocoa powder and licorice drop. Offers a tangy finish, showing a hint of black olive. Drink now through 2019. 6,700 cases made. " –AN
