"A tightly wound red, whose cherry, blackberry, tobacco and mineral flavors are wrapped in a strong grip of tannins. This is fresh, with enough fruit to balance its structure. Spice and mineral notes grace the finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2025. 500 cases made." (10/11)

"The 2008 Anterivo is a fresh, beautifully delineated wine laced with black cherries, espresso, flowers, crushed rocks and menthol, all of which come together nicely in the glass. A persistent vein of minerality gives the wine its focus and sense of direction. This is a terrific showing from Nottola. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018." (08/11)
"Wine characterised by an intense ruby red colour. Wide aromatic spectrum with delicious notes of vanilla, red fruits and sweet spices. Round and soft on the palate, with complex tannins. Persistent." - Winery
