Morellino di Scansano Riserva le Pupille 93js Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points, James Suckling: "This is extremely aromatic with flowers, lavender, thyme and rosemary. Full body, fine tannins. Wonderful texture. Tight and structured. Needs a year or two to open but shows excellent potential. 90% sangiovese and 10% cabernet sauvignon. Aged 18 months in used wood." Jamessuckling.com 10/2015. 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous:"A rich, powerful wine, the 2012 Morellino di Scansano Riserva boasts serious depth and structure. Layers of flavor built effortlessly as this large-scaled, voluptuous Morellino shows off its personality. A host of red-fleshed fruit, smoke, tobacco and iron add further layers of complexity. The 2012 is marked by the intense heat of the year, while the fleshy, radiant style holds considerable near and medium-term appeal."10/15. 90 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:"The 2012 Morellino di Scansano Riserva is a very beautiful wine that shows evident characteristics of both the variety and the territory of Scansano. Rolling hills and stone villages carved in tufa stone make this one of the most beautiful and least explored areas of Tuscany. Keeping in step, this wine presents wild flower aromas with grilled herb, forest berry, wet earth and toasted nut. The wine is distinctive and generous. "9/15.
