A very enjoyable “Toscana” that is young now but can be enjoyed if there is food to pair with it. Aromatically, it came across as modern with ripe black cherry, currant, and tobacco. On the palate, good acidity with a streak of tart cherry down the middle, complemented by iron, tar and rose petal. Pop with a few slices of pizza and enjoy the ride. — 7 days ago
Dried cherry, sweet plums, with forest berries and floral notes. Hints of dried herbs and menthol too. Fresh, medium weight with a burst of red cherry, and dark raspberry fruit when drinking. Acidity shines with softened tannins wrapped with spice box flavors. Delicious, food friendly, and versatile. — 13 days ago

From one of the oldest producers of vino nobile, this amazing 2013 gattavecchi offers everything is right with this wine leaving every defect out of the door. The color is a deep, brilliant dark ruby, charming and foretell of the pleasures this product can offer. Ripe plum and raspberry are dominant, with delicate touch of age in the form of leather and mild spices. A touch of vanilla complete this wonderful palette of flavours. High, vibrant acidity, perfectly matched by powerful green tannins and a deep alcol flow. Everything is perfectly balanced, leaving a clean and memorable palate. If we want to find a mistake, the aftertaste is not as durable as I would have wished. But at this price tag, there are few matches. Wonderful with boar, my perfect match is a traditional Tuscan pasta, pici with ragu. 5 years is its top maturation age, drink it now or regret it forever.
A memorable wine, representative of the expression of terroir around Montepulciano. — 4 hours ago
