Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2005 Testamatta is 100% Sangiovese aged 18 months in new French oak. It is a beautiful, pleasing Testamatta in its sweet red cherry fruit layered with sweet toasted oak. The wine remains quite vibrant and in need of further bottle in age in order for the full range of its aromas and flavors to come through. This shows notable harmony. It is a terrific effort from one of Italy's finest growers." - Antonio Galloni (June 2008)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lots of plum skin, violet, blackberry and cedar aromas follow through to a full body, with toasty oak and currant. Firm finish. Solid as a rock. Sangiovese. Best after 2009. 1,200 cases made." - JS (Oct 31, 2007)
