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)

Deep ruby color with garnet hues. Tart blackberry, rhubarb, pepper, leather, and vegetal notes on the nose. Medium-plus acidity and noticeable tannins on the palate with notes of fig, dates, and dried prunes.

Another excellent choice. This one a little more refined than the Barolo.

Too much Cab Franc, adds a wet cardboard aspect I just don’t like. Strange, didn’t note that the previous time I tasted this.
