Brilliant ruby red. Intense, persistent, fruity, cherry, cassis. Dry, warm, quite tannic, medium-bodied, quite fresh, balanced.
The 2006 Carmignano Santa Cristina in Pilli is even better than the Montefortini. Here the aromas are a touch more delineated while the fruit is fresher and more vibrant. Violets, dark cherries, flowers, menthol and spices are all supported by a persistent note of underlying minerality that gives the finish its length and poise. This is a ridiculously good wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
