Waves of dark fruit sit on a textured frame of incomparable class. The wine blossoms over time with beautifully centered red fruit tobacco minerals and scorched earth all of which flow in a rich expansive style. The explosive finish is utterly beautiful. This is a superb effort from Sesta di Sopra. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. 95+ -Antonio Galloni

Aromas include black cherry vanilla dark mocha freshly ground espresso and a subtle touch of mineral dryness at the end. It's equally impressive on the palate with smooth thick intensity. - M.L.

Amazing aromas of blackberries sandalwood and dried flowers. Full body with chewy tannins and a powerful mouth feel of loads of fruit. Love the wet earth meat and dark fruits. Needs another three to four years to soften.

Dense sweet and seamless with captivating depth of fruit. Really saturates the palate on the long ripely tannic finish. At once broad and perfumed this is a lovely example of sangiovese.
