Tenuta Sant Alfonso Rocca Delle Macie 2009

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Tenuta Sant'Alfonso 2009 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a pure expression of Sangiovese. The grapes clearly benefited from the strong Tuscan sun, lending the wine a soft, velvety feel, with balanced acidity and freshness. Careful oak aging adds spice and richness.

Tenuta Sant' Alfonso - 90 points, Wine Spectator/ Black currant, violet, black cherry and licorice aromas and flavors take on a salty tang as this red develops on the palate. Ripe and rich, with dense tannins on the long aftertaste.

New Releases/ Aromas of cherries and crushed raspberries. Medium-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Lots of flavor. DELICIOUS. VERY WELL DONE FOR THE VINTAGE.

Chianti Classico 2013 - 90 Points, JamesSuckling.com/ I like the dried cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors as well as lemon grass and lemon rind character. Medium body, bright acidity and a clean finish. Solid Chianti Classico. Drink now.

Tenuta Sant'Alfonso 2007 - Wine Spectator/ Blackberry and mineral on the nose, with a hint of oak. Medium-bodied, with very fine tannins, turning a little jammy on the finish.
