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.
Tenuta Sant' Alfonso 2004 - Sante/ Old World style with elegant fruit and hints of iron and meat; medium to full bodied with smooth acidity, present tannins, and a long finish. Spaghetti and meatballs.
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.
Recommended Wines/ ...has a ripe red fruit, is full-bodied with a perfect balance of fruit, acid and tannins.
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.
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.
Recommended Wines: 2003 Chianti Classico/ Moisture-retentive soils saved the day here, and it shows. Lean but intense cherry aromas, and a full-bodied palate that has grip but is not too tannic.
