90 Point James Suckling: The wine has a deep, opaque purple color suggesting intensity and extraction. Heady aromas and flavors deliver jammy black fruit with notes of cedar. The body is full, with silky tannins and a long, penetrating finish. Carlo Ferrini created this Maremma wine from one of Tuscany’s great estates, which spans 115 acres (35 planted to vines) purchased by Antonio Moretti in 1999. The property is typical of Tuscany’s coastal areas, with pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones.

90 Point Wine Spectator: Candied cherry and herb flavors highlight this juicy red. Firm tannins provide backbone as this finishes with a tight grip. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante and Petit Verdot. 500 cases imported.

The property’s geology is a patchwork typical of Tuscan coastal areas, with pockets of soils rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones set in various protected microclimates. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly-exposed hillside vineyard parcel rising 330 above sea level planted to 5.5 acres each Alicante and Petit Verdot and the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon. Harvest is carried out by hand, and after initiation of fermentation, the wine remains in contact with the skins for 25 days, with manual punch down of the cap, followed by malolactic fermentation and 20 months’ aging in all new French oak barriques. Six months in bottle precede release of the finished wine, which is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance equally in Alicante and Petit Verdot.

The property is typical of Tuscany’s coastal areas, with pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly hillside vineyard rising 330 feet above sea level and planted with 5.5 acres of both Alicante and Petit Verdot; the balance is Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are hand harvested and then fermented with prolonged maceration on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation and maturation in French Allier barriques and in bottle before release.

Exceptional with full-flavored meats and hard cheeses.

I will not taste this wine until bottle shock risk is over.
