Sometimes you don't need to add a thing to a review because the critic hits it dead on. Suckling really nailed this wine with his review.
"Dark, with fantastic aromas of currant, blackberry, spice and lightly toasty oak. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a texture as fine as the best cashmere from Scotland. Superb. Needs time in the bottle to show its full potential. One of the new hot wines of Tuscany. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2008. 3,330 cases made."
I can only add that this might be the darkest wine I've ever had ... dangerously close to port in color. There's also this fantastic smoke hickory note in the nose that pulls you in. It's brilliant now, but Suckling's right to say it needs 3-4 years. I'll try my next bottle in late 2006 or 2007. 95
