"Beautiful crushed raspberry and blueberry character, with a minty licorice undertone, showing a subtle use of new wood. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a seamless, silky mouthfeel. Very pretty. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2012. 3,500 cases made. -JS" (10/09)
90 Pts Ian Dagata - Vinous Media
"Deep, moderately saturated ruby. Highly floral nose reminds me strongly of petit verdot, with its aromas of violet, lavender and cassis. Then quite young, even a bit youthfully aggressive, in the mouth, with some oak yet to be resolved among the substantial ripe red and black fruit flavors. The tannins build on the back but are fine-grained and smooth, and a lingering floral note adds interest. This ought to develop nicely with a few more years in the bottle and offer fine drinking for another eight to ten years after that." (10/10)
"Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot. Arnione is an ovoid of alabaster found at the heart of high-quality gypsum, and the name alludes to the art of alabaster carving for which their area of Tuscany is renowned. Fermented and macerated in steel tanks, malo in barrels, aged in new French oak for 18 months, then in bottle for 12 months."
"Blackish ruby. A faint whiff of cedar but quite closed on the nose at the moment. Intense red fruit: fresh and sharp yet with layers of baked fruit underneath. Some tea-leaf notes, sage leaf and fennel seeds. The fruit is sweet but the finish is dry and interesting. Charred edges. Supple but purposeful tannins. Modern and classy. Drink 2010 to 2015. (TC)" 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages (12/10)
"ARNIONE is the Italian word for a kidney-shaped lump of alabaster, the heart of top-quality, valuable gypsum. It alludes to the art of carving alabaster, for which this part of Tuscany is renowned." -Winery
