Notes 1: "A structured red with blackberry, mineral, iron and walnuts. Full-bodied, structured, chewy and fruity. Intense and beautiful. I love the tension and richness. Drink or hold."
Notes 2: This is a rich red with cherry, light mushroom and bark character. Full body, beautiful fruit and wonderful finesse. It's very flavorful and persistent on the finish. Made from organically grown grapes. Fantastic. Drink or hold."

Vinous Media 92
"(100% sangiovese): Good full ruby-red. Captivating aromas of raspberry, toffee, black tea and flowers. Dense, lush and sweet, with bright, very deep red fruit flavors complicated by hints of game, flint and violet. Offers lovely harmony and finishes suave and extremely long, with an enticing fruit/acid balance. This multilayered wine is likely to age well."

Not sure what the future holds for this wine; it may not age all that well - Drank over two nights. Nice on night one, with lots of ripe, dark fruit and a heavy mouthfeel. Some savory and earthy flavors underpinning the ample fruit. Balanced medium acid and tannins leading into a pretty long finish...in a really good spot. Drops off by night two, even after storing under ArT18. Fruit recedes and alcohol comes to the fore, making it feel thin and hot. Not sure what the future holds for this wine; it may not age all that well judging by our second night experience. Poor-to-modest QPR at USD$33. Overall, "very good," 87/100.
