The passion and experience of Empson’s and Franco Bernabei, the maestro of the Tuscan reds aka Mr Sangiovese has brought splendid fruit to this wine that epitomises the harmony of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Deep crimson in colour, with an intense bouquet of red berry, violet and toasted vanilla with a touch of leather and chocolate. Expect a full rich flavourful palate with fat tannins and a velvety lingering finish.
Here is a recent review from wine critic James Suckling – Pretty aromas of rosehip, pomegranate, raspberry, blueberry, orange zest and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with sleek, fine tannins. Wonderfully silky and juicy with an abundance of freshly crushed berries. Very fine. One of the finest wines they have made. Drink or hold. Score: 94 Points
