Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
“A dense matrix supports black cherry, iron, earth, tobacco and coffee flavors in this beefy red. Tips toward the tannins in the end, but stays in line. Drink now through 2028. 15,300 cases imported.” – BS (Mar 2019)

91 Points - James Suckling:
A juicy and fruity wine with blackberry and cherry character. Just a hint of smoked meat. Full-bodied, round and soft. Drink now. (September 2018)

90 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Tre is 80% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination of those three grapes makes for a well-priced entry-level Tuscan red that would pair nicely with pasta or spicy sausage pizza. This is a soft and simple mid-weight wine with a bright bouquet that is colored with vibrant tones of dark fruit, spice and grilled herb. The quality of the fruit in this classic vintage is what pushes this value wine up to an exciting 90-point threshold. Bottle production is 500,000 units strong." - Monica Larner (October 2018)
