Steve Tanzer 91(+) WE91 points - Representing the latest release of a project authored by Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari with Sangiovese from Candy Mountain and Boushey (blended with 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Syrah), the 2009 Saggi evokes cherry jam and candied chestnuts mingled with vanilla and faintly burnt sugar on a polished, plush palate, piquancy of cherry stone serving for a welcome sense of counterpoint and push-back to the wine?s sweet confitured and confectionary cast. Given what I take to be Washington State proclivities ? not to mention those of the principle grape in question ? I anticipated a sense of brightness and energy to the finish here, but it is instead as soothing, creamed-over, and suggestive of confitured and confectionary sweetness as the wine?s mid-palate impression. Bitter notes of cherry pit and char persist here as well. I imagine it will hold up well for at least 6-8 years but won?t attempt to speculate about its flavor evolution.

LONG SHADOWS VINEYARDS 2009 LONG SHADOWS SAGGI "(62% sangiovese, 29% cabernet sauvignon and 9% syrah; 55% new oak): Bright, deep red-ruby; quite dark for sangiovese. Lively aromas of cherry, flowers, menthol and cocoa powder. Juicy, perfumed and intense, with brisk acidity and a floral topnote nicely lifting the strawberry fruit. Finishes with strong, chalky tannins and lovely length. Built to age: I'd forget about this for at least four or five years." Steve Tanzer International Wine Cellar 91(+) points
