This SuperTuscan, predominately Sangiovese, has 5% Colorino blended into it. This second Tuscan indigenous grape gives a dark ruby red color to the wine. The nose is a delicate balance of fruit and oak, with scents of ripe berries, vanilla and coffee. It is full-bodied on the palate, impeccably balancing sweet tannins, wood and acidity with a long, fine finish.

Wine SpectatorBeautiful chocolate, vanilla and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very pretty. Sangiovese.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Sezzana is a full-bodied, intense offering loaded with super-ripe dark fruit, menthol and toasted oak. There is a subtle note of greenness that lurks in the wine, and the tannins are unusually firm within the context of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019.

Antonio Galloni, June 2008
