Wine Advocate 89 points - The estate’s Morellino di Scansano Poggio Valente, a single-vineyard selection, is made from a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Alicante and aged in barrique. The 2003 Morellino di Scansano Poggio Valente is big, powerful and somewhat monolithic, showing good dark cherry fruit although its hard tannins give it a rough around the edges quality. Still, it is a more than respectable showing from this difficult vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012.  (Feb 2007)

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2002 Poggio Valente is one of the biggest surprises in this tasting. How proprietor Elisabetta Geppetti made a wine like this in 2002 is frankly beyond me. The 2002 is absolutely singing today. It shows a bit more freshness than the 2003, with a gorgeous sense of harmony in its dark red fruit. There is a level of sheer power and richness in the glass that is a marvel to behold. Earthiness, tobacco, truffles and dark cherries linger on the eternal finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. (May 2011)
