San Felice Pugnitello 2008
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.
