JS 91 Pts, WS 90 Pts - Winemaker Notes "Nipozzano 2011 is a ruby - red with good consistency. The nose opens with a strong fruit component of blackberry, blueberry and cherry. Sweet notes of cotton candy and spicy notes of cloves and nutmeg follow. The tannins are dense, but not harsh. The palate is warm and smooth, lovely persistence and remarkable taste -olfactory correspondence."
According to the Wine Spectator "The cherry and raspberry flavors are singed by black pepper in this elegant, vibrant red. Firms up, ending with fine length and a spicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2019"
