Product Details

As far as we are concerned, 2011 is of the same calibre as 2010: very powerful, intense wine with huge potential. 90% cab. sauv., 5% Sangiovese and 5% merlot and let nobody claim otherwise….

Vinous (Antonio Galloni:
“The 2011 Sammarco is so youthful it almost tastes like a barrel sample! Dark, rich and inviting, the 2011 possesses notable concentration and depth, with round yet powerful tannins and a surprising level of freshness for the year. A host of black cherry, graphite, smoke, plum and lavender notes accompany the powerful finish. It will be quite some time before the 2011 is ready to drink, but three is plenty to look forward to.”

Wine Advocate (Monica Larner): “The fullness and generosity here is absolutely amazing. The 2011 Sammarco is one of the protagonists of this vintage. In fact, I think Sammarco represents the hot 2011 growing season better than any other wine from the Chianti Classico area. The bend this year is 94% Sangiovese with 6% Merlot (the breakdown between the two grapes is usually 90-10) and the wine is fermented with ambient yeasts. The bouquet is beautifully redolent of dark berry fruit, soft spice, licorice and cola. The wine’s overall elegance and length are both impressive.” 94+/100
