    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense ruby red.

    Bouquet: scents of wild flowers, cherries and plum.

    Taste: full bodied, elegant and refined, sweet tannins, balsamic note, fine finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Scents of super-ripe dark cherries, tobacco, spices and leather waft from the glass as the 2006 Il Gentile di Casanova opens up. A vein of minerality frames the fruit beautifully through to the long, creamy finish. The La Spinetta house style built on ripeness and textural depth is in evidence in this Sangiovese-based red but is not as overdone as in previous wines. This is a gorgeous juice. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.

    La Spinetta wines continue to impress me (this one, Barbera Ca Di Pian 06', Il Nero di Casanova 06'). The initial is very refined with red berries. There are subtle sweet spices that lure you to more complexity at the end. For the price, this is closer to 4.5.
