Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Il Blu is truly an exceptional wine. This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon pours from the bottle with midnight black intensity. The wine is luscious and loud in terms of its aromatic intensity but the effect is beautifully balanced all the while. The wine is streamlined and tight in the mouth but don't underestimate its length and persistence. The finish can be counted in many long heartbeats. Some 32,000 bottles were produced.
Wine SpectatorBlackberry, pomegranate, black currant, tar and mineral flavors are the hallmarks of this concentrated red. Still feels youthful and tannic, with time to give. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2019 through 2030. 2,100 cases made.
