Wine Profile

Ratings Rated 91 Points Wine Spectator - "There's plenty of ripe black cherry and plum fruit here, offset by leather, earth, a resinous oak note and gripping tannins. Features vivid acidity, concentration and intensity. Built to age. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2022. 660 cases made. –BS"
Awards Rated 91 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Rapace bursts from the glass with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, spices and menthol. The 2009 possesses marvelous inner sweetness and perfume. The warmth of the year comes through, but it is nicely balanced by the wine’s underlying minerality. Hints of grilled herbs and licorice add complexity and nuance on the finish. Rapace is 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017."
Vineyard Notes Rich, complex and powerful, but clean and smooth at the same time, with prominent but fine-grained tannins, and a dynamic, rising finale long-lingering
Production Notes Composed of 70% Sangiovese selected from Montalcino, 20 % Merlot and 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, at elevations of 150-350 metres on well-exposed hillslopes south-east of Montalcino. Maturation in small French oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months. Bottle ageing for a minimum of 6 months before released for sale.
Food Pairing Notes First courses with spicy sauces, with meats and cheeses and all dishes of a strong taste
