James Suckling, 96 Points 

"Shows a really distinctive herbal edge of blackberry leaves, charcoal and black peppers. Iodine and crushed-stone undertones in addition to vivid blackcurrants. Full-bodied, very linear and well defined with a firm tannin backbone, driven acidity and a mineral, chewy finish."

Vinous, 96 Points 

"The 2015 Il Caberlot opens with a blast of blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice and spice. Exotic and deep, with tremendous character, the 2015 delivers serious flavor intensity while remaining light on its feet for such a powerful wine. The combination of textural resonance and finesse is striking in the 2015. Bottled only in magnum." 

Wine Advocate, 95+ Points 

"Made with the elusive Caberlot grape, the 2015 Il Caberlot (with only 3,100 Magnums produced) is a beautifully ripe, dense and rich expression from one of the most beautiful spots in Tuscany. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and undergo malolactic fermentation in barrique, before a 22-month aging period in small French oak (of which 75% is new). The wine is impeccably balanced and concentrated with dark, plummy fruit, spice, tar and savory tobacco. Caberlot is a distant relative of Cabernet, and you can tell as much as you contemplate the bouquet and full-bodied appearance of the mouthfeel of this warm vintage Tuscan red." 

Wine Spectator, 95 Points 

"Effusive aromas and flavors of black currant, blackberry, violet, cedar, iron and tobacco mark this elegant, balanced red. The vibrant structure keeps this well-defined and pushes the long aftertaste."  

Alcohol: 13.5%
