Wine Spectator:

"Notes of blackberry and black cherry are accented by tobacco and spice in this concentrated red, which is fresh and lively, with a firm finish. Drink now through 2014. 6,000 cases imported." (10/12)

Product Description:

Producer:
"No one really took winemaking seriously near the town of Fiesole on the hillsides north of Florence. It was more of an enclave for rich Florentines or old peasant families from the region. However, Bibi Graetz changed it in 2000 when he began making wines at his family's castle in the area called Castello di Vincigliata."

"The 44-year-old winemaker - who is actually half Norwegian and half Israeli - has an affinity for old vines, particularly indigenous grape types such as Sangiovese, Colorino, and Colore. It's with Sangiovese that he really shows his winemaking prowess, with most of the grapes coming from ancient, low-density planted vines on the hillsides of Fiesole." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com (08/11)

This wine was also rated 88 Points by Vinous and 82 Points by Wine & Spirits.
