This vineyard-designated riserva delivers perfumed notes of red rose, pressed flower and a bright, berry-driven bouquet. In the mouth, this is a plump, bold wine with thick concentration and loads of dark fruit such as blackberry and plum. The tannic firmness suggests at least 10 years of cellar aging. Overall, it is beautiful, elegant and bold.
Vigna Paganelli shows amazing results with a bright fruit quality that translates into black cherry and blackberry. At the back are sophisticated tones of leather, tobacco and light touches of spice that give the wine depth and elegance. The most interesting aspect, however, is the mouthfeel that shows firm but beautifully ripe tannins that will help the wine age…
Riserva Vigna Paganelli is an outstanding wine with bold chocolate and exotic spice aromas that are folded deep within the wine’s solid, succulent structure. This expression earns high marks thanks to the impressively rich and creamy feel it imparts in the mouth.
Strong as a cement block, with aromas of charcoal, leather and intense plum/berry. Still, in the mouth it’s luscious. In addition, there’s a sublime spice element playing in the background that only makes it more complete. Finishes with the essence of fruit cake and marzipan. A pleasure.

This blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc is a fine example of the super Tuscan concept. It’s rich, deep and grapey, a sensationally ripe wine, loaded with tobacco, bacon and cassis. It’s lush, with only modestly full tannins, so it won’t require years in the cellar before it can be drunk. The finish is smooth and delightfully layered…
Loaded with pepper, hard spice and leather, but there’s also plenty of bursting red fruit to this traditional Brunello. With every minute it’s open the wine evolves: At first it’s sweet and forward, but with time it turns earthy and leathery, and ultimately it gets very tight and brooding. Full acids, hammer-like tannins and major-league structure say hold for a…
