Intense yet subtle with small red fruit and delicate grassy notes. The flavor is full, warm, structured, and very pleasant, and has a fruity and spicy, long-lasting finish. These grapes' preference for hilly clay soils, make it a harmonious and pleasant wine to drink. This wine is perfectly capable of evolving in many years to come

Wine Enthusiast 92"Therra is a dense and round blend of Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that offers pretty harmony between its dark fruit side and it exotic spice component. Lingering notes of cherry, chocolate and leather drive the long finish."

Wine Enthusiast 90"From the new estate run by Giovanni and Paolo Bulgari (of fashion and jewelry fame), this pure expression of Sangiovese shows very interesting aromas of bright red cherry, perfumed blue flower and a touch of sweet spice. The wine is focused, compact and crisp on the close."
