Long Shadows Saggi 2013
An intensely colored wine with red current and cassis aromas wrapped around a core of licorice. Soft and silky on the entry, Saggi is a flavorful package loaded with wild berries, fresh plums and hints of oak spice complemented by the wine’s lively acidity and firmly textured mid-palate that turns silky on the finish.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of Sangiovese (59%), Cabernet Sauvignon (32%) and Syrah. Toast, herb, cranberry and spice are followed by lush, ripe fruit flavors. It possesses a firm structure.
Wine AdvocateI found the 2013 Saggi to be good, but surprisingly firm and lean, with aggressive tannin. Made from 59% Sangiovese, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Syrah, aged 18 months in 55% new French oak, it offers pretty Sangiovese notes of cedary spice and dark fruits, integrated acidity and a good finish. Give bottles 2-3 years in the cellar to let the tannin integrate, at which point it will be easier to see where the fruit/tannin balance is headed.
