About

92

"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)

90 Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"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)
