- 91 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST: "Made with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, this boasts inviting aromas of blue flower, cedar and red-skinned berry. The bright palate doles out juicy Marasca cherry, red raspberry, a hint of mocha and star anise alongside silky, polished tannins."
- 90 Punkte WINESPECTATOR: "Dense and taut, with black currant, wild herb and earthy notes. The tannins are rustic, yet there is a lot of sweet fruit. Finishes long. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2024. 26,000 cases made."
- 91-92 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "A round and delicious wine with bright fruit and fine tannins. Medium body, lovely flavors and a fresh finish. Blend of cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese. We will see how it ages but already beautiful."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Soil composition: Soils have different morphological characteristics with a high incidence of limestone areas rich in clay and stones; they are situated between 100 and 400 meters above the sea level facing South / South-West. Training method: Cordon spur Planting density: 5.500 to 6.250 vine stocks per hectare Climate: A very good vintage that influenced in a very positive way the wines of 2015. After a mild and rainy winter, the vegetative start was in the second week of April with the arrival of spring and higher temperatures. The spring rains helped a lot the vegetation and ensured the water supply for the following summer. The excellent flowering ended in late May, and the perfect setting favored by a good climate. In June and mid-July temperatures were above the seasonal average, but by the end of July the temperatures got lowered returning to the average thanks to a long rainy day, really good for the vines.Rains helped a lot avoiding any physiological stress for the vines and helping growing the grapes favoring veraison. The good temperature range between day and night that occurred from late August helped an optimal phenolic ripeness of the grapes. Grapes were with an excellent quality with a perfect ripeness, pretty cool and crisp. The great structure combined with elegant and soft tannins is the main element of this vintage. Harvest: The harvest, strictly manual, began in late September with Cabernet Sauvignon and finished in October with Sangiovese. Healthyand perfectly ripe grapes. Wine making: Pressing and soft crushing of grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and without adding external yeasts. Maceration on the skins for 10-13 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon and for approximately 13-15 days for Sangiovese, with later phases of pumping and delastage. The malolactic fermentation is always in stainless steel tanks. Ageing time: At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in oak barriques. It then spends 3 months in bottle before the release.|
