Castello di Volpaia, Chianti

Balifico, 2011



tasting notes:

The 2011 Balifico (Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese) is an intriguing wine. An exotic melange of dark cherries in liqueur, smoke, licorice and menthol jumps from the glass. The Balifico is rich, powerful and incredibly intense.. Mint, flowers and herbs are layered into the finish.
James Suckling: 94 points
