Youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. On the palate, Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit fl avors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fi ne tannins indicates a cellar worthy wine.
Pretty aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry, vanilla and spice lead to a full body, with velvety tannins and a lot of toasty oak and currant. Long and rich. Very polished. Best after 2011.
The estate’s 2006 Valdisanti is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc. Here the fruit is marvelously rich and decadent, with layers of cherry preserves, roasted coffee beans, new leather and French oak all woven together in fabric of notable class. The sheer richness of the fruit should allow the Valdisanti to develop gracefully in bottle for a number of years. Dried flowers and mint linger on the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
