Starts off pretty reductive but after some serious swirling beautifully dark fruits and oriental spices emerge with dusty minerals and a whiff of bitter chocolate from its upbringing in French oak. Pungent stuff. Full and rich on the palate with sweet tannins and an underlying acidic spine creating freshness despite its obvious power. Dry finish, completely unleashed but very promising. Try in 2018 and beyond.

Nice mid-range Super-Tuscan blend. A touch of Cab gives this a nice rounded feeling. Lots of character.

Delicious, well balanced, Tuscan bland. Right amount of fruit, earthiness and funk. Really liked this wine! The restaurant, “Enoteca Sociale”.

FGM 94. Good nose. Smooth with both subtle fruit and earth flavors. Great finish with a touch of acid. 1997 vintage
