“A vibrant, fresh feeling expression of Sangiovese. This is strong in pomegranate and cranberry red berry fruit character, warm dusty spice, fine, slender tannins and is offset with freshening, vibrant acidity. It sits perfectly on medium weight, tightens well in the palate and generally feels like something you would like to drink a lot of.” 93 points - Mike Bennie, Wine Business Magazine
“Medium purple colour with red edges. Dark, sour cherries - toasty, charry oak, loads of moving parts. It's a balanced and beautifully-made wine, sinewed and cored, a sustained drive of cherry-led fruit.” 91 points SILVER - Nick Butler, The Real Review
"Goes all right. Gets the mix of fruitiness and savouriness right. Cherries and earth and tobacco leaves and leather. Good chew of tannin on the finish too. Rutherglen and Sangiovese may well be an unlikely pairing but it works here." 91 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
