The 2007 Saggi, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Sangiovese, has fresh, bright fruit combined with delicate notes of ripe, wild strawberry and well-integrated wood spice. A slight earthiness enhances the wine's complexity and flavor. Silky in texture with a lengthy finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 91
"Deep purple colored, it displays an expressive perfume of cedar, Asian spices, black cherry, and cassis. Supple and round on the palate, this savory offering has excellent volume, plenty of concentration, and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92
"Good full medium red. Aromatic nose features plum, dried flowers, licorice, pepper and spices, lifted by a minty nuance and sexed up by a hint of white fruits. Lush, broad and sweet, but with lovely inner-mouth energy and perfume to the red fruit, floral and spice flavors. Richer and less meaty than the 2006 version. Very suave wine, finishing with fine-grained tannins, excellent length and a light touch."
