This used to be one of my favorite reasonably-priced wines. I loved the Sangiovese blend--it had a nice weight, more substantial than a Pinot, and lighter than a Cab. I love the fact that they went to a screw-top (I'm a big fan of high quality wines going to screw-top). But they are taking this wine down-market, a very common strategy of wine marketers with popular brands (think Kendall Jackson in the early days versus now). It is far more fruity and less refined than even a few years ago. I think I'm going to abandon one of my old favorites!

Medium red. Aromas of red currant, milk chocolate, graphite and smoky oak. Simple, moderately ripe red berry flavors offer decent mid-palate sweetness. A bit pitched and dry on the end.

Generous, ripe and juicy plum, black cherry and cranberry flavors firms up, adding spice and tight tannins on the finish. Best from 2001 through 2008. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.

SIENA has delicious aromas of cherries, blackberries and currants complemented by sweet vanilla oak and caramel. On the palate, this wine offers ripe, juicy, baked berry pie with anise, cocoa and cola flavors, with lively acidity, supple tannins and a lingering finish.

One of the best reds for this price on the market, Ferrari-Caranorsquo;s `07 Siena is 78% Sangiovese and 22% Malbec. The Sangiovese is all silky mouthfeel, red cherries and spices, while the Malbec brings color, body and tannins. A lovely dry and unique wine.

An impressive blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with a track record of excellence. I have been a big fan of this bottling for many years and I believe the rsquo;97 to be one of the best. Smooth, rich, and intense with fat raspberry and black cherry flavors with well-integrated notes of plum, currant, and sweet spice all wrapped together by soft, ample tannins. Great now but will benefit from 2ndash;3 years of cellaring.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are the classic grapes found in the Italian 'super-Tuscan' red wine blend. They take on a new dimension when grown in Sonoma Countys earthy burnt orange soils. SIENA combines bright raspberry, cherry flavors with smooth tannins and a rich finish.
