    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Carmignano Santa Cristina in Pilli is similar to the Montefortini in its varietal blend and aging regime but it is a much darker and more masculine Carmignano. Dark wild cherries, iron, minerals, spices and flowers come together beautifully in a firm style that needs another year or two in bottle to show at its finest. Still, it is impossible to ignore the wine’s pedigree and sheer class. This is a fabulous effort, not to mention a steal for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

    The Wine Advocate

    A blend of sangiovese, canaiolo nero and cabernet sauvignon; 12 months in barriques and larger oak barrels; 14% alcohol. Bright ruby-red. Delicate aromas of sour red cherry, redcurrant and flowers. Then bright and fruity, with brisk acidity lifting the sour red cherry and strawberry fruit and extending the flavors on the aftertaste. Finishes fresher than the Montefortini.
