"The 2013 Ampeleia, the estate's Cabernet Franc/Sangiovese blend, is fabulous. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, orange peel and intense, savory notes meld together in a deep, juicy Tuscan red full of personality. All the elements fall into place effortlessly."

"Pure rose, cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors signal this elegant red, backed by a solid structure. Shows fine complexity and length, but needs decanting to enjoy now. Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2023. 1,666 cases made."
