"Full and velvety, with pretty strawberry and blueberries with just a hint of vanilla bean. The texture and finesse to this wine is beautiful. Drink now but better in 2012. Sangiovese and Merlot." (12/11)

"Though firm and youthful now, this red boasts a core of blackberry, raspberry, floral and mineral flavors. The juicy texture offsets the tannins, and the aftertaste echoes sweet fruit. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2013 through 2023." (10/11)

"Belcore is an 80-20 blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that opens with bright cherry and forest fruit and delicate nuances of vanilla seed and spice. It's silky and smooth but not without drive and character. -M.L." (02/12)
"I.G.T. Toscano Rosso. This wine is a blend of Sangiovese 80% and Merlot 20%. This was aged in 300 liter French tonneaux for about eight months, followed by six months in bottle before the release on the market."
"Intense purple color tending to violet. The palate bursts with attractive violet and blackberry notes followed by a long, substantial finish." -Winery
"We are a little Estate in the north west of Tuscany not far from the sea. Our Estate and vineyards lie in a sunny position upon mellow hills on the left bank of Arno river, just before it reaches the sea. The Estate is situated between Pisa, Livorno and the Tirreno Sea. In this way it benefits of the positive climatic influences of the coast." -Winery
