2012 Saggi

Saggi 2012 - Stephen Tanzer

"Lovely aromatic perfume of cherry, strawberry and licorice. Plush glyceral, offering superb depth to the flavors of red and darker berries, spices and mint; a real wave of fruit on the palate. Impressively broad, pliant blend with building dusty-but-sweet tannins and outstanding length." - Stephen Tanzer




Saggi 2012 - Wine Advocate

"Another candidate for best vintage to date of a cuvee, the 2012 Saggi comes from fractured basalt and sandy loam soils and spent 18 months in 55% new French oak. It offers perfumed, savory notes of dried flowers, Asian spice, new leather and sweet black cherries to go with a full-bodied, voluptuous, layered and seamless style on the palate. Giving up real Sangiovese character with the Cabernet and Syrah taking a back seat, it should evolve nicely for 2-3 years and keep for over a decade."
