"Attractive fruit,with aromas of black fruit and forest fruit.Big tannic structure,complex and rich,good fruit complexity,great length".

Awarded the Decanter ***** (Five Star) award.

"From a single vineyard,a blend of 85% Sangiovese,and 15% Merlot.Herby,spicy nose is rich and tarry,showing fairly serious opulent,fruit.Concentrated,chewy,savoury palate,with rich fruit and quite a bit of oak.Lovely,if a little oaky.Very good/excellent".

"A fundamental rule with respect to Tuscan wines is to buy all the 1997s and 1999s you can afford.Both are extraordinary vintages of ripeness and richness that should surpass the finest wines produced in such great years as 1990 and 1985.Both are consistently superb throughout Tuscany's viticultural regions".
"1999 is a year that rivals 1997 as one of Tuscany's greatest vintages.Consistency is the operative word,from humble Chiantis to the majestic proprietary red blends and Brunello di Montalcinos.The wines are extremely ripe,with low acidity as well as freshness and delineation atypical for wines of such size and richness.Readers who love Italian wines,particularly those from Tuscany,should be stockpiling the 1999s"
