"A concentrated, powerful and vibrant red, with cherry, plum, spice and earth flavors. Sweet spice and fruit elements echo on the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 7,000 cases made."

"The 2013 'Settimo' Rosso opens with inviting aromatics of black cherries laced with black olive and coffee grounds all coming together beautifully in the glass. Lightly tannic, this shows a silky mouthfeel and polished texture. Minerals, black tea, black olive tapenade and coffee ground flavors continue to leave an impression on the palate. Overall, this is a solid effort, as this forward yet mineral driven wine will continue to drink well with some short-term cellaring. (Best 2017-2024) August, 2017 (OB)"

"Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of smoked nuts, chocolate toffee, and cherry preserves with a supple, bright, dryish medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-length vanilla nuts, craisin, chocolate orange peels, and cedar finish with dusty, earthy tannins and moderate oak. A dry, nicely structured Super Tuscan built for the long haul and the table."
"Bright intense ruby red colored wine with a rich and sophisticated bouquet. Perfect balance between grape tannins and wood tannins that make it tasty, full bodied, with a persistent aftertaste. Noble wine." - Winery
