The 2015 Magari is terrific. Bold and sumptuous in the glass, the 2015 speaks with a real sense of authority. Succulent black cherry, plum, chocolate and spice are all front and center in this radiant, yet mid-weight wine. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2015 has quite a bit of tannin that needs a few years in bottle to resolve. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

A delightful sip. Ah..the nose of Tuscany, the perfect perfume of Sangiovese. Earth, lavender, rosemary, and all the rest.

A wonderful wine, youthful but already showing plenty of complexity with an intense fruit profile that is carrying the oak, and the tertiary characters. good intensity on the palate, with a long developing finish, give it some rest for a better harmony and integration on the palate.

After a week in napa its a palate shock to go italian with some of the same varietals. Good in its own right though with a luxardo cherry note and rustic finish.
