    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby color with garnet reflections, its elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, licorice and plums preludes a medium to full-bodied palate where ripe red fruit, gout de terroir, subtle notes of vanilla and violets that harmonize and linger.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A fruity wine with black cherry, blueberry and hints of pepper. Full and velvety with a long and delicious finish. Acidity is well-integrated with the fruit. One of the best value wines from Tuscany. Screw cap. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

    Elegant medium-minus bodied wine. Pretty potpourri and rose petals on the nose with a nice sharp mix of sour cranberries, acai, and pomegranate on the palate with a touch of cinnamon sugar to go along with lingering floral elements. Classy stuff; and the price point is wonderful. 91+

    A very good Tuscan wine. Fruity with a great Finnish. We enjoyed it very much. I bought 4 bottles. Great price.

    Lighter than I was expecting. Flavors draw out. Quite impressive for the price range!

    Let this one breath a bit before enjoying. At first I was wishing for this wine to have a little more fruit to balance the smokey leather flavors but then the fruit came forward and my impatience put in check. Tart cranberry, deep black cherry and plum. I am happy now :)

    Bought with low expectations to match low price. Wine delivered better than priced. Good with food, like pizza, or pasta. Overall thin, not much finish, but decent flavor. Come on Mr. Suckling - "Full and Velvety with a long and delicious finish."? Gotta disagree with you on this one.

    A distinctly dry wine with dark currant and blackberry hints with a lingering tannin finish. I didn't get the fruity character others have noted ,....even after decanting for hours. The price is about right for this red.

    Black cherries, plum and licorice dominate this Tuscan with overpowering acidity. There are many Tuscans available that are much better for a few dollars more. Was disappointed since it had a 90 rating from Suckling.
