Drank 9/3/18. Great pairing with Rigatoni Bolognese, although this seems like it would pair with a wide mix of foods

Nose of red and black cherries, mixed with some plum and cocoa notes. Palate of juicy red cherry, raspberry. Some leather and cocoa powder. Excellent balance with medium, well integrated tannins. Juicy red fruits on the finish that lasts 30 seconds or so.

3/22/8/5/3 +50= 91 pts.

Wood, spice, smoky mushrooms. Med+ acid. Vanilla that clearly says barrique without screaming it. Red fruit. Firm tannins.

Trying the 13 vintage. Really good, but only after many hours. Second day is when this wine starts shining. Cassis flavors. Smooth. Nicely structured.

Kicking it on a Saturday night in the backyard with a little sausage & sun dried tomato pasta sauce paired with Antinori Toscana. Decent stuff that paired nicely. Dark sweet & sour cherries, raspberries, poached strawberries, limestone minerals and bright red florals. The palate is round with medium tannins. Dark sweet & sour cherries, raspberries, poached strawberries, vanilla, limestone minerals, touch of soft leather, a little cedar, tobacco leaf, bright red florals, good acidity and finish.

Nice aroma of vanilla spice and berry. Very even pallet. Smooth 13.5 alc. finishes with just the right tannins. Good price point.

Deep plum color. Charcoal on the nose. Medium /full body, velvety at the finish. Tasting sweet wild blueberries & ripe strawberries. Dry peppery finish.

Great aromas. Full bodied but with a sweet twist. Raspberries... Had it with everything possible! Good wine to have and to offer!

Black fruits, pepper and spice with a hint of raspberries on the nose. The tannins were still not fully integrated and this wine can do with a few more years on its side. Beautiful finish.
