(JS=92) A red with refined tannins and a delicate mouthfeel. Medium body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. A little tannic and chewy now, but beautiful. Better in 2015. (RP=91) The 2011 Bolgheri Superiore (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) shows a surprising level of brightness and inner energy despite the heat of the vintage. In fact, this wine was a good surprise on many levels. The bouquet is intact with a solid base of dark fruit and sideline embellishments of spice, tobacco and leather all presented in good measure. The richness of the wine builds toward a rewarding finish.
