A very deep purple-red greets the eye, then the wine develops a multi-layered bouquet that foregrounds tanned leather and animal skin over ripe dried plum and a subtle herbaceousness. The wine is massive in the mouth, and exhibits velvety tannins and a warm alcohol complemented by a tasty vein of acidity.

Wine SpectatorThis darkly colored, plum- and blackberry-scented red is concentrated and fruity, with accents of menthol, spice and earth. Assertive tannins guard the finish. Drink now through 2018.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Pugnitello is another huge wine bursting with dark fruit. Wild flowers, sage, rosemary and tobacco appear later, adding further dimension to this powerful, muscular red. The 2008 needs quite a bit of time but it, too, is quite promising. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Antonio Galloni, June 2012
