"A little lean but pleasant mahogany, dried fruits and cedar character. Hints of meat. Full and chewy. Savory finish. Builds on your palate. Better to let it soften for a year before opening. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc."
Antonio Galloni - Vinous:
"Capezzana’s 2009 Barco Reale di Carmignano is ridiculously good in this vintage. An expressive, inviting bouquet melds into sweet red cherries, mint and licorice in this layered, expressive and striking effort. This is a dynamite wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014."
