Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2006 Vigna San Valentino offers up sweet spices, flowers and red berries on a mid-weight, silky frame. Soft and fragrant throughout, the wine offers lovely balance and an accessible, open personality. Some very slight oxidative notes appear in the glass suggesting this won’t be a terribly long-lived wine, but it should offer fine drinking for at least a handful of years. The San Valentino is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. In 2006 the DOC tasting commission rejected the Vigna San Valentino for its lack of color and oxidative tones, which seems a bit harsh in my view, even if those qualities are present. Bea opted to release the wine as an IGT and lowered the price by nearly 50%. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016."
