Castello di Farnetella Toscana Lucilla 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% Sangiovese , 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot Leathery, dark, earthy herbs, and plummy, this shows more merlot on the nose than anything else with some fairly smoky accents. pretty large scaled onentry and rich with tart fruit that shows wild cherry, plummy and blackberry nuances. There’s not a ton of complexity here, just a mouthful of vibrant fruit with soft but present tannins and refreshing acidity that shows a bit of toasty spice on the backend before fading away with an attractively austere finish. A fine juxtaposition of Sangiovese structure and rich modern fruit. 86pts
