Winemaker Notes: This superstar super-Tuscan is a blockbuster! Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice and currants. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards.

Blend: 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker - "A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Picconero Tenuta Montebello is a distinguished and important wine. I've been noticing how well Cabernet Franc performs at this Tuscan estate. You get a good sense of this here (and especially in this vintage). The wine opens to an inky black appearance as you would expect, with fragrant aromas of dried blackberry and candied cherry. Warmer aromas of allspice and sweet clove add more consistency and weight to the overall package. These various attributes find terrific harmony."


Wine Spectator - "Harmonious, complex and just beginning to hit its stride, this red features black cherry, black currant, violet, toast and mineral aromas and flavors that permeate the smooth texture, unfolding in layers to a long, fruit-, mineral- and spice-infused aftertaste. Merlot and Cabernet Franc."


James Suckling - "This is very chewy and rich with dark berry and chocolate character. A full-bodied red that needs time to soften. Savory and delicious. Give it two years to soften. Bordeaux blend."
