Grapes: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Sangiovese
Aging: French Oak Barrels
Tasting Notes: Antonio Galloni for Vinous 94 Points: "The 1996 Sammarco is one of the many highlights of the 1990s. The tannins have now softened, but there is plenty of fruit left. Graphite, smoke, black cherries and plums add further layers of nuance. One of the more lithe, mid-weight wines in this vertical, the 1996 is all about grace. I very much like the sense of freshness here." (AG) Oct 2015
