James Suckling: 99 Points

Sophisticated aromas of lead pencil graphite and blackcurrant. Hints of black olives and herbs too. Full-bodied yet tight and deep with super precision and intensity to the tannins. Incredible balance of structure and finesse to this. Give it time in the cellar. Better after 2027.

Decanter: 97 Points

A dark tone to the nose black pepper liquorice and black cherries with hints of rose. So fruit forward and expressive on the palate a riot of wild strawberries herbal-touched raspberries and spiced liquorice sticks exude from the glass giving nuance and complexity on the palate. This is clean and crisp with fine but softly creamy tannins weighty structure and such sweet succulent fruit. Intense yet delivered with a slight of hand that gives definition and layers it's fun and serious - just wonderful. So much going on here. Ageing for 24 months in barriques (80% new 20% one year old).

Wine Spectator: 94 Points

Rich and deeply colored evoking black cherry blackberry plum tar wild herb and spice flavors. Dense yet retains a sense of freshness with refined tannins lining the finish. Nicely integrated and long. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2038. 7916 cases made 1000 cases imported.
