Winemaker Tasting Notes: Elegance, character, and persistence are what make Millecento 2016 a wine for the ages. The barrel aging emphasized the characteristics of the vintage, enhancing the Sangiovese aromas, wonderful balance, and superb tannins. A great acidity supports the superb aging potential.
"Blueberries and cherries with hints of cedar and spice, as well as plenty of mixed dried flowers, including violets. Some graphite and stone, too. Medium-to full-bodied with racy tannins and a long, long finish. It’s linear and complete, with lovely elegance and structure."- James Suckling.
"This red reveals both power and finesse, with intense aromas of truffle, black currant, violet and iron leading off, backed by saturated dark berry fruit, floral, leather and tobacco flavors. Big, muscular tannins grab hold of the finish, with ample fruit in reserve. Best from 2026 through 2045."- Wine Spectator.
