90 pts. Wine Spectator: September 30, 2012
Base notes of chocolate and coffee liqueur enrich smoke, tea leaf, roasted plum and black currant candy flavors in this well-honed red, while a supple juiciness and a hint of dried mint linger on the finish. Teroldego, Lagrein and Merlot. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
88 pts. Wine Enthusiast: July, 2012
A blend of Teroldego, Lagrein and Merlot, this well-priced Italian opens with inky, dark concentration and loads of ripe fruit, blackberry and cinnamon. Nicely balanced, it’s not too bold or overextracted.
