A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, aged for 2 years in large oak barrels, medium Ruby with dark fruit aromas and enticing herb spices. On the palate berry and cherry flavors, smoky oak with pepper and floral spice. Well integrated soft tannins, long finish ending with mineral tones. Very nice! Good value! — 8 days ago
Great Value Super Tuscan! Blend of (equal parts) Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Aromas and flavors of cherries and chocolate. Hint of sour lemon pith. Full bodied with just a touch of tannin. Lush and juicy but soft and polished at the same time. Outstanding! — 19 days ago
Toscana wine evening #6
Bright cherry, herbs, uplifting aromatic whiff, enticing. Medium body yet with good depth & purity of fruit. Still young & a bit reductive yet with Promise of more to come. Beautiful tannin management. Great drinkability.
This is really, really good stuff. — 3 days ago

Typical Chianti Classico with bright black cherry and tomato leaf. A touch of savoury leather / herby side, too. Light & elegant on the palate with bright acidity balancing the fruit.
I prefer the Chiantis from the western hills vs the rest - not as burly & long lived, but so fresh & elegant. — 3 days ago
Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and sweet herb notes. On the palate ripe cherry, plum and dried fruits with tobacco and cola notes, well balanced on firm tannins still with a good grip that loosens quickly. Long finish ending with mineral and earthy notes. Good now but will still benefit from a few more years. Went great with hearty pasta dish! — 5 days ago
