Lovely aromas of blackberries, flowers and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate with silky tannins and a long finish. Classy for the vintage. Half the normal production and excellent for it. Best after 2005. 1,250 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2002 Castello di Fonterutoli Siepi IGT 750ml
