Castello Di Volpaia 2016 Balifico Toscana IGT Italy
94 pts Vinous - The 2016 Balifico, Volpaia's blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, shows the estate at its very best. Espresso grilled herbs, plum, licorice, leather, menthol and spice open up effortlessly in a beautiful, resonant wine loaded with personality and sheer class. The tannins need time to soften, but there is plenty to like. -- Antonio Galloni
94 pts Wine Spectator - A rich, fluid style, boasting black cherry, black currant, violet and leather flavors. Supple, yet firmly structured, with dense tannins emerging on the long finish. This needs a year or two to come together fully and should age beautifully. Best from 2021 through 2035.
93 pts James Suckling - A firm and silky red with blackberry and blueberry character. Medium to full body, fine and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Finesse as always. A blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon.
