"A fascinating blend, with a bouquet of flowers, berries, nuts and mineral. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and pretty fruit. The wood comes through a little on the palate, but this is going to develop wonderfully. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Mourvèdre."

"The estate used more Sangiovese in this blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Alicante because there was more of it at harvest time, and they liked the results of those higher blending percentages anyway. The 2007 was more evolved compared to the 2006 Caiarossa, which comes out much more balanced. There is good dark fruit with dark cherry. Now is the time to open this bottle if you have it." - Monica Larner

(a complicated blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah, mourvedre, alicante and merlot) Full, deep ruby. Crushed cassis, raspberry and violet on the slightly inky, tarry but vibrant nose. Enters dry, broad and backward, then turns quickly dense and lush but not as sweet or open-knit as some of the 2007 barrel samples I tried recently at this relatively young estate, which has recently doubled its holdings by purchasing another 30 hectares in the Riparbella area. Offers plenty of ripe red and black fruit flavors, joined by hints of tar, dried herbs and smoke. The long finish features substantial but noble tannins. Very promising wine; I'd cellar it
for another three or four years and enjoy it for another five to eight after that. - Ian D'Agata
