Earthy, charcoal and dusty on the initial nose follow by licorice, and dry cranberry.
Herbal, spicy, plumy on the palate, silky texture, refine tannin and moderate acid. Finishing like a sweet herbal tea.
Mixture of the quality of new world and old world wine.
14.5% ABV

Very floral nose with strawberries, spice box, cinnamon and tobacco.

It's tight coming out of the bottle. The mouthfeel is pristine. It's so well balanced, with a surprising sweetness, accompanied by saddle leather, maple syrup and super-ripe cherries. This is a monster which had stood still in the bottle. It finishes long and strong.

This is an outstanding super tuscan which will can only evolve to a better place. Leave this for at least another 5 years or so.

10 years and peaking, by far the best and most mature Magari I've tasted. Fantastic nose combining Tuscany and Right Bank Bordeaux, smooth and mature fruit, leather and cassis end with a perfect finish and silky tannins. Gaja almost affordable!
